Music Notes for August 19 from Eun Ju

Updated: Sep 18, 2018

Offertory: Our wonderful summer choir will sing "I'll Fly Away", which was composed by a renowned gospel songwriter of the 20th century, Albert Brumley, in 1929. Please join us in praising the Lord through our voice together! Let's meet at the sanctuary at 9:20 am this Sunday.

Prelude: Fantasy in G Major is often given the French title Pièce d’orgue, as it makes reference to the contemporary French style in several ways. Bach specifies the tempo markings of the three sections as très vitement, gravement, and lentement. In addition, each section's musical style is followed by the examples of French music such as the use of suspensions.
