Coelos Ascendit Hodie - Charles Villiers Stanford (1852 - 1924)
A little about this piece
Stanford is one of the greats of Anglican church music. The text for this anthem is often sung on Ascension Sunday and includes the lyric "Today in the heavens has ascended Jesus Christ, the King of Glory, Alleluia!"
Members of St. Gregory's Choir sang it on May 24, 2020 as a part of our pandemic inspired streaming liturgy.
The singers are Jessica Anderson, Joe Bolling, Sanford Dole, Abbie Kelly, Ruthann Lovetang, Bill Phillips, Jon Spangler, and Judith Tucker.
