This week we celebrate the time and effort that the choir dedicates to worship each week as they sing the last Sunday of the academic year. The adult choir sings two anthems, one by the English composer and Westminster favorite Andrew Carter (b. 1939) and the other based on music by Claude Goudimel (c. 1520-1572), a French composer of the late Renaissance. Goudimel is most famous for his settings of the Genevan psalter, a metrical French translation of the psalms made under the supervision of John Calvin for the use of Reformed churches in Geneva. Goudimel converted to Protestantism shortly after leaving university, and in 1572 was a victim of the St. Bartholemew’s Day Massacre, in which thousands of French Protestants were murdered.
