A Lenten Celebration, 2019

“The Woman at the Well”

“The Woman at the Well”

We are marking the mid-point of Lent with a special feature episode. You’ll hear a range of great seasonal music from a variety of composers arranged around the final three Gospel readings for Lent, the “Scrutiny Gospels.” These readings are shared with us by composers Meredith Augustin, Ian Callanan, and Luke Rosen. We hope that this presentation will help you in your own preparations for the celebration of Easter.

So, please open your hymnals!
