Sinfonia in G minor . . . J. S. Bach (1685-1750)
Five Mystical Songs: No. 4 The Call. . . Ralph Vaughan Williams (1872-1958), words by George Herbert (1593-1633)
Come, my Way, my Truth, my Life: Such a Way, as gives us breath:
Such a Truth, as ends all strife: Such a Life, as killeth death.
Come, my Light, my Feast, my Strength: Such a Light, as shows a feast:
Such a Feast, as mends in length: Such a Strength, as makes his guest.
Come, my Joy, my Love, my Heart; Such a Joy, as none can move:
Such a Love, as none can part: Such a Heart, as joys in love.
Here I Am, Lord . . . based on Isaiah 6, Daniel Schutte, arr. by Craig Courtney
