Palm Sunday with Lemmens' music!

The Palm Sunday of 2015 is coming. Our ensemble, the Warsaw Anglican Voices, together with me, is preparing the musical part of Palm Sunday Liturgy. This year we decided to perform a set of music composed by excellent Belgian composer, Jacques-Nicolas Lemmens (1823-1881), who also spent a third of his life in London.

So, we will perform:

  • Mass in F major for two treble voices and organ 

(Kyrie, Gloria, Credo, Sanctus, Agnus Dei)

  • The 3rd Organ Sonata in A minor, called "Sonata Pascale" (Easter Sonata)

(Allegro - Adoration - Finale: Alleluia)

The Liturgy - together with Palm Sunday Procession - will be framed in this way, that the 1st movement of the Organ Sonata will be played as a Prelude; the "Adoration" will sound during the communion, and the final Alleluia will be performed as a Postlude.

The parts of Mass in F Major will be included into the normal course of the Liturgy - instead of the same parts of it sung by parishioners.
Since the Gloria is integral part of Lemmens' Mass, we will perform it exceptionally (we have no Glory to God during the Lent). The rest of musical part - four church hymns - will be traditional, Anglican.

Everybody is warmly welcome! Let's celebrate the Palm Sunday all together - with excellent Lemmens' music!
