Music: Sun Oct 30

Sunday morning’s musical selections reflect on the “Day of the Dead” theme of the service. The Prelude features the slow movement of one of Beethoven’s early piano sonatas, one of the composer’s deepest expressions of grief and mourning. Soprano and CUUC member Kim Force, who offers several vocal works as well, offers the following comments about the Opening Music and the Interlude: In “I Will Follow You into the Dark”, the singer muses about what would happen if his love should die before he does. Chris Martin from Coldplay wrote “Fix You” for his wife after the tragic passing of her father, with whom she was very close. The song looks at how we try to support people suffering from loss.
