Prelude                                Partita on “Ebenezer”                                            John A. Behnke

Theme – Pedal Solo – Bicinium – The Cross

The recessional hymn (#519) is from an 1845 poem, “The Present Crisis,” by the American poet James Russell Lowell. It was first included in the 1916 edition of The Hymnal. The hymn tune “Ebenezer” (from 1890), taken from an anthem by the Welsh poet Thomas John Williams, is also known as “Ton-y-botel” (Tune in a bottle) from a legend that the tune had washed ashore on the coast of Lleyn in a bottle. John Behnke (b.1953), retired Concordia University (WI) music professor, composed his variations in 1998 using the tune in a variety of moods. The 4th movement has a sustained high pitch throughout (symbolizing the cross of Christ) against repeated chords with the tune in the pedals.


(Psalm 18:18b-19) The Lord was my stay: He brought me forth also into a large place. He delivered me, because He delighted in me.(Psalm 18:1-2a) I will love thee, O Lord, my Strength. The Lord is my Rock, and my Fortress.


(Psalm 6:4) Return, O Lord, deliver my soul: O save me for Thy mercies’ sake.

Fanfare (from Partita on “Ebenezer”)                       John A. Behnke

Postlude    Fugue (from Partita on “Ebenezer”)                          John A. Behnke

Note: The book of Psalms is the hymnal of the Bible, containing poetry intended to be sung. The music that is being used is a method of singing non-metrical texts, known as Anglican chant. (Anglican chant began in churches during the 16th century English Reformation as an outgrowth of plainchant for singing Scriptural and liturgical texts.) The Psalm for today is being sung by the congregation using a total of three notes. The technique is chanting in speech rhythm on a single pitch to a second adjacent pitch on the last word at the end of the phrase (the asterisk or the end of the verse). The odd-numbered verses ascend in pitch; the even-numbered verses descend.

Be it known to all who enter this Holy Place, that the Blessed Sacrament of the Body and Blood of our Lord

Jesus Christ

is reserved in the Tabernacle.  A genuflection, or acknowledgement, is the proper reverence before His Presence.  Leave not without worshipping and adoring Him upon His Altar Throne.

Note from Fr. Michael:

Our website  is a major source of information, communication, as hours are spent weekly posting articles and information for our church and of our faith.  To give you an idea of what can found, just in our blog section (which you go to through the homepage), the following has been recently added.

Lord’s Prayer: changes suggested by Pope Francis are discussed via scripture and Anglican thought.

Next weekly calendar (week of June 30th) is posted and is expandable, so viewable on phone.
