March 22- The Episcopal Way

The Episcopal Way
Sundays in Lent, 12:45- 1:45 pm
Denominational affiliation is becoming less and less a factor in church participation. Still, however, it is critical to be informed about the basic principals of The Episcopal Church, because they are the structure and framework of our church life. Eric Law and Stephanie Spellers wrote The Episcopal Way as Volume 1 of the Church’s Teachings for a Changing World. Law and Spellers’ work brings a fresh and new perspective to the meaning of Episcopalian.  Their book, which is available at Epiphany for $10 or on Amazon, will be the conversation starter for Sunday sessions in the Willard Room.

There’s Something About Mary – Mary is certainly a “Grand Old Name,” having been featured in some of the oldest choral music ever composed (in honor of the Virgin Mary), Broadway musicals (“Maria,” “They Call the Wind Maria”), and even songs from our childhood (Mary Had a Little Lamb”).  Join the Washington Men’s Camerata for a concert of beautiful contrasts as we feature music about different Marys.

On Sunday, March 8th at 3:00 p.m. the 16 Virtuoso Cellist return to Church of the Epiphany. Local cellists join together with their colleagues from Michigan, Pennsylvania, New York. They are the stunning faculty of the adult cello workshop, Cellospeak, held on the campus of Bryn Mawr College each summer. In a wonderful variety of works, one of the center pieces will be a rarely heard Largo from a Villa-Lobos work called “Fantasia Concertante,” originally written for 16 cellos for the dedication of the New York Cello Society. This may be your only opportunity to hear this singular piece.  New arrangements for the 16 Cellos by Gary Fitzgerald include the Dvorak “Rondo” with its shared melodies among players, a lovely “Elegy” by Delius, and the Rimsky-Korsikov “Flight of the Bumblebee.” From the incomparable “Angel Series” of Piazzolla they will play new arrangements of all three, also made possible by our arranger, along with the gospel hymn “Pass Me Not,” sung by guest artist Howard Sapp. You won’t want to miss this concert!   Please bring your kids (who are free up to age 18) and friends.
