보라 내가 새 일을 행하리니


사 43:14    
너희의 구속자요 이스라엘의 거룩한 자 여호와가 말하노라 너희를 위하여 내가 바벨론에 보내어 모든 갈대아 사람으로 자기들의 연락하던 배를 타고 도망하여 내려가게 하리라15    나는 여호와 너희의 거룩한 자요 이스라엘의 창조자요 너희 왕이니라 16    바다 가운데 길을, 큰 물 가운데 첩경을 내고 17    병거와 말과 군대의 용사를 이끌어 내어서 그들로 일시에 엎드러져 일지 못하고 소멸하기를 꺼져가는 등불 같게 한 나 여호와가 말하노라 18    너희는 이전 일을 기억하지 말며 옛적 일을 생각하지 말라 19     보라 내가 새 일을 행하리니 이제 나타낼 것이라 너희가 그것을 알지 못하겠느냐 정녕히 내가 광야에 길과 사막에 강을 내리니 20    장차 들짐승 곧 시랑과 및 타조도 나를 존경할 것은 내가 광야에 물들을, 사막에 강들을 내어 내 백성, 나의 택한 자로 마시게 할 것임이라 21    이 백성은 내가 나를 위하여 지었나니 나의 찬송을 부르게 하려 함이니라

She earned two M.M. from The Juilliard School of Music with Honor on scholarship and from Temple University as well. Currently as a Private Voice Teacher In NY Area. more…

 

Ta’u Pupu’a, Tenor, is unique in the opera world. He was an outstanding Defensive End in the NFL but a career-ending injury changed his life and led him to a new career: opera. He is just as outstanding in his role as operatic tenor, as shown by the following comments: “…He seems to have limitless power… but the voice has real gold in its best moments.” (New York Times) “…Everyone took notice at his brilliant tone, breath-control and ravishing, powerful tenor…” (Italian Tribune), “In the treacherous heldentenor role of Bacchus, Ta’u Pupu’a brought reserves of stentorian power and heroic strength, singing gloriously.” (Classical Review), “… The sound is a big one too, a big, meaty voice that would cope comfortably with Wagner or Verdi. And he is so in control of the tenor range – high, low, medium – that one gets a thrill from hearing him in full flow. It’s not just a weighty sound; it’s an alluring one.” (Behindthearras.com) more…

Seungho Choi completed his bachelor’s degree in Performance at the Hanyang Univ., South Korea, completed his post-graduate course specialization as a concert soloist in clarinet at the Royal Conservatorium in Belgium and completed MM in SUNY Purchase. He was awarded first prize winner in the Korean National Young Artist Competition in 1988. He won first prize in the Hanyang Univ. Concerto competition in 1996. Also he was winner of the concerto competition of 2002 in the SUNY Purchase. He was part of the Seoul wind ensemble, Royal conservatorium Wind Orchestra, and Hanyang Univ. orchestra. He was also a part of many clarinet choir such as, the Kansai Clarinet Quartet in Japan, the Boeykens Clarinet Choir in Belgium and The Artemis Ensemble in New York. Currently, he is the Music Director of Träumerei Clarinet Ensemble and one of the members of the New York Youth Orchestra Chamber Music Program coaches.

MCPC Choir (Juri Pang, Organ/Music Director; Narim Kim, Conduct) sings Deus Tu Convertens  by Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina. This was published in Rome in 1593 as part of a cycle of Offertories. It’s a lively and vivacious piece of music for five parts that’s characterised by a pronounced harmonic richness. The first line of the text is a very formal invocation to God asking him to turn to us this rapidly turns into a cascading series of semi-quavers as the choir asks God to quicken us (Deus Tu conversus vivificabis nos).  In the second line ‘et plebs tua laetabitur in te’ (and Thy people shall rejoice in Thee) Palestrina conveys the sense of a people rejoicing by using  lenghtened (dotted) notes which he couples with strong and dynamic rythmns. Palestrina expresses and explains the people’s need for God to turn to them  in the third line ‘Ostende nobis Domine misericordiam tuam’ (Show us Thy mercy, O Lord) which he follows by the strong ‘et salutare tuum da nobis‘ (‘and grant us Thy salvation’). There then follows a short (only half a bar) pause and the whole of the final section is sung again ending the motet on an uplifting note.

Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot) 2016

Feast of Tabernacle: Oct 17-23. Eighth Day of Assembly: Oct 24

Five days after The Day of Atonement, the joyous Feast of Tabernacles began, not only as a reminder of the Children of Israel dwelling in tents in their sojourn to Canaan, but also prophetically of the future rest in Heaven of the faithful. It was a joyous time because the people felt cleansed from the burden of their sins and at peace with God. This feast lasted for 8 days with sacrifices each day.

Sukkot is a harvest festival. The one mentioned in the Book of Exodus is agricultural in nature – “Feast of Ingathering at the year’s end” (Exodus 34:22) – and marks the end of the harvest time and thus of the agricultural year in the Land of Israel.

Passages to Meditate:
John 8:12 When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”

Psalm 118:19 Open for me the gates of the righteous; I will enter and give thanks to the LORD. 20 This is the gate of the LORD through which the righteous may enter. 21 I will give you thanks, for you answered me; you have become my salvation. 22 The stone the builders rejected has become the cornerstone; 23 the LORD has done this, and it is marvelous in our eyes. 24 The LORD has done it this very day; let us rejoice today and be glad. 25 LORD, save us! LORD, grant us success! 26 Blessed is he who comes in the name of the LORD. From the house of the LORD we bless you. 27 The LORD is God, and he has made his light shine on us. With boughs in hand, join in the festal procession up to the horns of the altar. 28 You are my God, and I will praise you; you are my God, and I will exalt you. 29 Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.

Celebrating the Seasons of the Lord!

It is increasingly common for Christians to celebrate the biblical, Jewish feasts. Jesus himself in the New Testament celebrated biblical holy days. In fact, it was very important for Jesus to celebrate the seasons of the Lord.

The Gospels record that our Lord Jesus not only celebrated the festival, but He took traditional elements of the celebration and applied them to His own life and mission. We find this particularly in John 7 and 8 where Jesus uses two traditional symbols from the Feast of Tabernacles celebration, water and light, to help the people understand who He is and what He offers.  Christ in the Feast of Tabernacles in John 8:12 said “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”

rosh-hashanahRosh Hashanah

 

We celebrated the Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah, which is also known as Yom Teru’ah, the “Feast of Trumpets.”  The blast of the shofar is not just a call to repentance, but a reminder of Jesus’ return.

1 Thessalonians 4:16 For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first.

 

 

 

 

 

 
 

엡 2:1    너희의 허물과 죄로 죽었던 너희를 살리셨도다 2    그 때에 너희가 그 가운데서 행하여 이 세상 풍속을 좇고 공중의 권세 잡은 자를 따랐으니 곧 지금 불순종의 아들들 가운데서 역사하는 영이라 3    전에는 우리도 다 그 가운데서 우리 육체의 욕심을 따라 지내며 육체와 마음의 원하는 것을 하여 다른이들과 같이 본질상 진노의 자녀이었더니 4    긍휼에 풍성하신 하나님이 우리를 사랑하신 그 큰 사랑을 인하여 5    허물로 죽은 우리를 그리스도와 함께 살리셨고 (너희가 은혜로 구원을 얻은 것이라)  6    또 함께 일으키사 그리스도 예수 안에서 함께 하늘에 앉히시니 7    이는 그리스도 예수 안에서 우리에게 자비하심으로써 그 은혜의 지극히 풍성함을 오는 여러 세대에 나타내려 하심이니라 8    너희가 그 은혜를 인하여 믿음으로 말미암아 구원을 얻었나니 이것이 너희에게서 난 것이 아니요 하나님의 선물이라 9    행위에서 난 것이 아니니 이는 누구든지 자랑치 못하게 함이니라 10    우리는 그의 만드신바라 그리스도 예수 안에서 선한 일을 위하여 지으심을 받은 자니 이 일은 하나님이 전에 예비하사 우리로 그 가운데서 행하게 하려 하심이니라
