Please join us as we present “Nymphs & Shepherds”, our salute to the madrigal rage that swept England for the last decade of Elizabeth’s reign and beyond. All of this frivolity will be balanced by a few more sober compositions including William Byrd’s jewel, the Mass for Five Voices.
As usual our concert will be presented twice at the historic Church of the Holy Trinity, Eaton Centre – on Saturday May 30th at 7:30 p.m. and on Sunday May 31st at 3 p.m. For directions to the church, please consult our website www.cantemus.ca

While empire in Jesus’ time consisted of distinct forms of oppression including military occupation, violence, unjust taxation, and slavery, … we have to look deeper and wider to put a recognizable face on empire. … As stated in To Seek Justice and Resist Evil, contemporary “empire is not dominated by any single state but by a network of powerful economic interests held together by the ideology of neoliberalism,” and furthermore, is a system in which most of us play some role, wittingly or unwittingly.
Living Faithfully in the Midst of Empire, United Church of Canada, 2006
We acknowledge that we gather upon the traditional territories of the Mississauga Anishaabeg, Haudenosaunee and Wendat Indigenous Peoples, the original nations of this land, who continue to cry out for justice.
prelude – Entry of the Kings
Opening – Prepare ye the way of the lord
Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem was not a simple act of obedience to God, following some preordained path to destruction and ancient prophesy. It was a radical challenge to an Empire that could not be physically resisted. It was a powerful act of political theatre and call to revolutionary change that still reverberates today. Unfortunately, empire continues to dominate our lives.
Let us prepare ourselves to join Christ’s parade into Jerusalem by first asking each other for forgiveness. Continue reading Disrupting Empire – service text
The story of Palm Sunday is a story of theatrical resistance: a usurping of entrenched authority. The procession into Jerusalem parodied the imperial triumphus of the roman occupiers and even that of earlier Jewish kings. Christ’s entry into Jerusalem claimed the imagery of power and turned it on its head–a donkey, not a war horse; children, beggars, parents and labourers, not an army and priests. His entry proclaimed not imperial power, but a new realm of peace: a place where what matters are not the powers, but the people and the land itself.
Join Fallen Angles and the whole community of Holy Trinity as we consider Christ’s disruptive power in the face of empire, both then and now, in story, movement and song.

free, but donations appreciated (to cover costs)
What: A private musical pub night for members (of Holy Trinity) and guests only in the old chapel. We’ll gather and listen to live music and sing some great songs together, talk, dance and share libations and maybe hatch some plans.
RSVP would be very helpful in planning.
Food and Drink: Pot luck munchies and BYOB.
If you are interested in performing (music, poems, reading), then please make careful selections to fit in 15 minutes and please rehearse as best you can. My hope is that this can be a good sharing of art and time together, but I want to resist randomly standing up to do unprepared work. Check with me around your set-up needs to see if you need to come early to set up.
- 5-6 card tables (if anyone sees these available for cheap or free at a garage sale or on Kijiji or something, that would be great.
- 3-4 padded bar stools. Again, cheap or free from somewhere would be great
- aimable floodlight bases. These are often used to light signs or thing like that. We could use a few to provide stage lighting to help create a nice atmosphere
- white garden lights (or patio lanterns). We’d like to keep the room lights off and create a nice low-light atmosphere conducive to a pub feeling.
8:45pm – recorded music and conversation
9:00pm – fourth slot
9:30pm – sixth slot
9:45pm – seventh slot
10:00pm – recorded music for dancing and conversation
