Many thanks to the First Presbyterian Wind Quintet (Christyn Klinck, flute; Li-Chen Chin, clarinet; Aurelia Klinck, saxophone; J.L. Klinck, french horn; and David Smith, bassoon) for their musical contribution to the service.

This piece is based on the familiar melody of Joy to the World, which is traditionally attributed to George Frederick Handel, mingled with several fragments from that other piece of Handel’s, Messiah.
