Requiem by John Rutter, Special Music Service at First Parish Church of Groton
On Sunday morning, March 31, at 10 a.m., the adult choir of First Parish Church under the direction of Shawn McCann, Director of Music Ministries, will present John Rutter’s ‘Requiem’, accompanied by an ensemble consisting of harp, oboe, flute, cello, timpani, and organ. Five of the seven movements are based on text from the Latin Requiem Mass, while the second movement is a setting of “Out of the Deep” (Psalm 130) and the sixth movement is the anthem The Lord is my Shepherd (Psalm 23). Every measure of this work is beautiful and moving. All are welcome. First Parish Church is located at the corner of routes 40 and 119.
