Advent Service of Music

On Sunday, December 2, 2018 the Grace Presbyterian Church will present its annual Advent Service of Music at 4:00 P.M. in the church sanctuary. This service will feature three cantatas of Johann Sebastian Bach:

  • “Ich freue mich in dir” (“I rejoice in you”) (BWV 133)
  • “Erforsche mich, Gott, und erfahre mein Herz” (“Search me, God, and know my heart”) (BWV 136)
  • “Wo Gott der Herr nicht bei uns hält” (“If the Lord God does not stay with us”) (BWV 178)

The Choir of Grace Presbyterian Church will be joined by an orchestra and soloists.

Donald Du Laney, Director of Music at Grace Presbyterian Church, will conduct.

Bach cantatas are rarely heard in the New York metropolitan area outside of Manhattan, so this is a unique opportunity to hear these three beautiful works.

There is no admission charge and no tickets are required for entry. A freewill offering will be taken. This offering in its entirety will support local ministries such as Montclair Emergency Services for the Homeless and the Montclair Citadel of the Salvation Army. A reception will follow in the church’s Fellowship Hall.

This Advent let the timeless, grand music of Johann Sebastian Bach be your foundation for the joyous season to come.
