Welcome to this Service of Worship from Mayfield Salisbury Parish Church
Trinity Sunday - 12 June 2022 at 10.45am
This is the big lie that the world tells us: the world is
connected by trade agreements, electronic banking,
computer networks, shipping lanes and the seeking
of profit – nothing else. This is the truth of God:
creation is a holy web of relationship, a gift meant
for all; it vibrates with the pain of all its parts; its
destiny is joy.
Julie Polter, From 'Sojourners'

Hymn 113 God the Father of Creation
(t. Cwm Rhondda)
THIS MORNING’S CHOIR MUSIC The quiet and understated introit is a
short movement from the major work ‘The Liturgy of St John Chrystostom’
(Opus 31). Rather than use a direct translation of the Russian, A M
Henderson (a former professor of Music at Glasgow University) has cleverly
set an appropriate Psalm verse. The opening sets out the full text, which is
then repeated with a solo soprano descant added.
The Cherubic Hymn, ‘Izhe Heruvimi,’ is a central part of the Orthodox
Liturgy for Eucharist being sung during the Great Entrance. Tchaikovsky
was the first composer to create choral compositions from parts of the
Liturgy, beginning with his setting of the ‘Liturgy of St John Chrysostom.’
He later produced a set of nine sacred pieces with no less than three
further settings of the Cherubic Hymn of which today’s anthem in F major,
is the first. The first three verses start very quietly and increase in intensity.
There are straight repeats until the second half of the third verse which
then leads into a fourth with increased tempo and dynamic, bringing us to
vigorous ‘alleluias’ to finish.
