Music Notes
This morning’s organ music is by two late 16th/early 17th century composers – one French, one Italian. Jehan (or Jean) Titelouze was a musician, poet and priest who became organist of Rouen Cathedral in 1588. Girolamo Frescobaldi was one of the most important Italian composers of the late Renaissance and early Baroque periods. In 1608 he became organist of St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome.

Please mark Sunday 9 November at 4 pm on your calendar for “Remembering” – a concert of readings and music, both sacred and secular, to honour veterans of, and those who did not return from both world wars. And help us to spread the word beyond St. Barnabas’ to the wider community – our goal is to fill the church! Tickets are available from choir members or the church office ($15 – youth under 16 are free). See poster here »
