CJCS ​​​​​Upcoming Performance at Our Lady of Good Counsel Church

CJCS Spring Performance – Mozart Requiem

Friday, May 20, 2022 – 7:30pm

Our Lady of Good Counsel Church

137 West Upper Ferry Rd, Ewing, NJ 08628

Tickets are $20 in advance online and will be $25 at the door on the performance evening.

From Artistic Director Christopher Loeffler:

“Mozart’s Requiem is unique in the choral repertoire due to the circumstances of its composition.   Mozart composed significant material through the beginning of Lacrimosa section of the piece. The conclusion of the work was ultimately completed by his student, Franz Süßmayr. Mozart brings his artistry to bare on his confrontation with mortality and his fervent cries for forgiveness. No sooner do the cries reach a fever pitch than the Maestro finds his eternal peace and the work shifts to the reverent attempt of Süßmayr to honor the work of his master. The final movement ends with Süßmayr attempting to resurrect the music of Mozart’s Kyrie section on a different text. The result is a little awkward and an excellent homage that acknowledges the genius that has been lost to the world.”

“We dedicate this performance to friends and family we have lost. Like Mozart and his Requiem, they made an incredible impact on our lives and we are left behind, honoring their memories to the best of our abilities, striving to complete the works that they left unfinished.”

PRAYER FOR EASTER

Risen Savior, your rising from the dead fills us with immense wonder and great hope.

In your abundant mercy, you endured death to prove your love for us and set us free from sin and death.

Fear, hatred, suffering and failure cannot endure.

In our celebration of the great feast of Easter,

we look forward in certain hope for new life,

not only after death, but in our hearts right now.

Throughout the Easter Season, may we seek and find your gift of a spirit renewed.  Amen.

We pray that during this Easter Season, the Risen Lord will grace you with renewed hope, lively faith and sincere love. May all the joys of Easter be with you and your loved ones, as together we continue to celebrate the great Alleluia!
