S.D.G. Soli Deo Gloria. To the Glory of God Alone. One of the five solae of the Protestant Reformation, the anagram appears on the manuscripts of all of J.S. Bach’s religious music and on many of his secular compositions as well. For Bach, artistic creation was an expression of absolute faith in a divine creator. The keyboard works performed at this morning’s worship service include arrangements for piano of choral and organ works by J. S. Bach as well as several of his original keyboard pieces. CUC’s Choir also presents music of faith, including a lullaby from the Sephardic tradition in which a mother’s recitation of the Sh’ma lull a baby to sleep.
