We extend a warm Walla Walla welcome to student musicians from Bakersfield Adventist Academy – the choir directed by Tara Peterson, and the Hand Bell Choir directed by Timmy Baze. We also welcome the Walla Walla University String Quartet consisting of students Willa King, and Emma Knight, violin; Roylan Messinger, viola; and Brandon Rittenour, cello. Please join me in welcoming and thanking all of these students from afar and right here at home.

The WWU String Quartet performs the second movement from String Quartet in A Major, Op.18 No.5 by Ludwig van Beethoven (1770–1827).

The prelude presents two spirituals arranged by Bill Ingram, a free-lance composer from Texas. The anthem, composed by John Leavitt (b.1956) of Kansas, is sung in Latin and based on Isaiah 6:3.

Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord God of hosts
Hosanna in the highest.
Blessed is He that cometh in the name of the Lord
Heaven and earth are full of the Glory of God
Glory be to God

As you prepare your heart to worship I invite you to ponder silently the words of the anthem or of the hymns we sing together.

-Kraig Scott
