Offertory Anthem    O bread of life from heaven    Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750)
John Nowacki, soloist

O bread of life from heaven,
O food to pilgrims given,
O manna from above:
feed with the blessed sweetness
of your divine completeness
the souls that want and need your love.

O fount of grace redeeming,
O river ever streaming
from Jesus’ wounded side:
come now, your love bestowing
on thirsting souls, and flowing
till all are fully satisfied.

We love you, Jesus, tender,
in all your hidden splendor
within these means of grace.
Oh, let the veil be riven,
and our clear eye in heaven
behold your glory face to face.

Voluntary    Toccata on Great Day    Adolphus Hailstork (b. 1941)

Adolphus Hailstork is an American composer and educator. He grew up in Albany, New York, where he studied violin, piano, organ, and voice. As a child, he joined the choir of the Episcopalian cathedral. From this experience he developed an interest in vocal melodic writing that asserts itself in his choral works and art songs. Hailstork is of African-American ancestry and his works blend musical ideas from both the African-American and European traditions. His principal teachers were H. Owen Reed (Michigan State University), Vittorio Giannini and David Diamond (Manhattan School of Music), Mark Fax (Howard University) and Nadia Boulanger (American Institute at Fontainebleau).
