Singing the Spirituals 11am Morning Worship
August 19, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Rev Ian Y Gilmour leads worship. Mezzo soprano Andrea Baker and pianist Richard Lewis of Sing Sistah Sing join this special service of worship during the Festival. Brigitte Harris directs our choir and musicians.
Ian Gilmour has explored the story of slavery and song over several periods of study leave and shared his findings in concerts, lectures and worship here at St Andrew’s and St George’s West and in the US. We welcome Andrea and Richard back to St Andrew’s and St George’s West to this special service of worship during the Edinburgh Festival to make music and sing the stories of slavery and liberation held in spirituals.
Our key text is Ephesians 5:15–20. Music at the service includes
Introit: Carvel Take me to the water
Anthem: Carvel Steal away- Deep river – Swing low
Hogan This little light of mine
plus spirituals from Sing Sistah Sing
Children of all ages are welcome.
After worship come downstairs to the Undercroft for coffee and a chat!
