Moravian Music Sunday
May 19, 2019
Recognizing that music is a means of proclaiming the Gospel, we celebrate Moravian Music Sunday
on the fifth Sunday of Easter, which, in 2019, is May 19.
This year we take as our theme …
There are also many Moravians living today who are writing hymn texts and music, anthems, instrumental music, sacred songs, and all sorts of music – probably someone in your own congregation! While we are offering some suggestions for specific hymns and anthems, we encourage you to seek out those gifted composers and authors in your own congregation and celebrate their gifts.
To help in your planning, we’re including the following items (Links to be updated for 2019) —
- A suggested order of service, which can easily be adapted for use in a lovefeast;
- A short liturgy for Moravian Music Sunday;
- A “statement to be read” which focuses attention on Moravian music in the perspective of faith and worship; or, _______;
- Information regarding the music suggested for Moravian Music Sunday, which you may use in your newsletter or bulletin; and
- A camera-ready “front-and-back” bulletin insert, describing Moravian music and the Moravian Music Foundation.
