NJ Chamber Singers to Host Program August 26, 7 p.m.
Save the date! On Thursday, August 26, the New Jersey Chamber Singers will host a presentation on Haydn's Mass in Time of War (Missa in Tempore Belli), the masterwork they will be performing in spring.
Composed in 1796 during drawn-out war and successive Austrian military defeats by Napoleon's forces, this dramatic mass features bold timpani at unexpected moments. The Chamber Singers' presentation will explain not only the historical background but also the musical significance of the composition to enhance our listening experience.
The free program is set for 7 p.m., followed by light refreshments. All are welcome!
This presentation marks the return of the singers to All Saints after several years. We are pleased to once again serve as their rehearsal space.

You can purchase raffle tickets for your basket(s) of choice after service or through the Church Office during office hours. Tickets are 3 for $5, 7 for $10, and 15 for $20.
If you prefer to make a donation, use the e-Giving tab on this website and select "Basket Raffle" from the dropdown menu, or make a check payable to All Saints Church and write "Basket Raffle" on the memo line.
The drawing for all baskets will take place on Sunday, August 29, and you don't need to be present to win.
This is a slightly different version of the usual gift basket raffle offered at the annual Fashion Show Luncheon, which could not be scheduled in time this year due to the ongoing pandemic. The raffle still aims to raise funds for the Guild's outreach efforts.
Photos of two of the baskets appear at right. Click here to see more. Come see them all in Bristol Hall!
