South Africa v England PreviewIt’s expecting too much to think that episode two of the Anglo-Boks series will deliver the drama of Ellis Park. That ten-try bonanza, won 42-39 by the hosts, was remarkable from the moment Elliot Daly landed a 61-metre penalty in the second minute.Even so, the Free State Stadium (aka Toyota) in Bloemfontein should be witness to another high-scoring match at altitude in which England will be desperate to end a five-match losing run – if you include the Barbarians game that Eddie Jones counts as a warm-up.England’s disintegration from 24-3 up made a mockery of the idea that they’re well placed to win next year’s World Cup. They were helpless against the pace of Premiership stars Faf de Klerk and Willie le Roux, and again conceded far too many momentum-shifting penalties – a dirty dozen. If the ones against Jamie George for not rolling away cleanly enough were harsh, others were inexcusable. Chris Robshaw and Maro Itoje were the biggest culprits.Livewire: scrum-half Faf de Klerk played with a pace that England couldn’t live with at Ellis Park (Getty)The switch of positions between Daly and Mike Brown was not successful, with Brown getting caught too narrow in defence and Daly making kicking errors. But it’s an experiment that continues this weekend and at least England are forewarned, because four of the five tries they conceded last week came after the Springboks cut back to the short side.So delighted were the Boks by the impact of their overseas stars that they called the newly retired Schalk Brits into camp, where he’s been able to share insights about former Saracens team-mates.Their extraordinary win – only Wales among Tier One nations had ever overcome such a huge deficit – has already made this a memorable series. Now England, who have slipped to fourth in the world rankings, must respond.Starting the rush: Mike Brown took his try brilliantly but otherwise had a difficult day (Getty Images)What’s the big team news?There are two changes to England’s starting XV in Jo’burg, both in the pack. Joe Launchbury is fit again after a calf injury and replaces Nick Isiekwe, while Brad Shields, 27, gets a first start following his 45 minutes off the bench last week.The selection of the New Zealand-born Shields, who has never played in England, has inevitably prompted protests. But his parents, Nigel and Danielle, are both English-born and they have defended his switch of allegiance in an illuminating interview in the Daily Mail.While Isiekwe has most of his career ahead of him, Robshaw’s demotion indicates a potential changing of the guard. At 32, his place at next year’s World Cup is starting to look uncertain.The Quins man is not even on the bench as Mark Wilson, who won his two previous caps in Argentina a year ago, joins the match-day 23. Danny Cipriani, who was last capped in a RWC 2015 warm-up, is also on the bench and will add, in Eddie Jones’s words, “something a little bit different” later in the game.Adding his weight: lock Joe Launchbury stretches during an England training session in Durban (Getty)The day will initially be about Tendai Mtawarira, who will become the sixth Springbok to play a century of Tests. The others are Victor Matfield (127), Bryan Habana (124), John Smit (111), Jean de Villiers (109) and Percy Montgomery (102).The 32-year-old Mtawarira, whose ‘Beast’ nickname is one of the best known in the game, joins an elite group of seven props who have made 100 or more Test appearances.He lines up in a side showing two changes from Ellis Park. The fit-again Frans Malherbe, one of South Africa’s best players at the last World Cup, replaces Stormers team-mate Wilco Louw at tighthead, while Pieter-Steph du Toit displaces Jean-Luc du Preez at seven. The side looks stronger for the changes.What have the coaches said?South Africa coach Rassie Erasmus: “Like a typical front-rower, ‘Beast’ is not someone who likes the spotlight. However, his contribution to Springbok rugby during the past decade has been enormous. To reach 100 Test caps is a special achievement.“England are a powerful side and I know Eddie Jones will have his team super-prepared. They will want to bounce back to level the series, so it’s going to be another huge Test of our resolve and character.” Fresh blood: Brad Shields makes his first start for England in a match they must win to stay in the series Centurion: Boks prop Tendai ‘Beast; Mtawarira joins an elite club ten years after his Test debut (Getty)England coach Eddie Jones: “Based on South Africa’s likely selection of an extra lineout jumper, we’ve decided to start with Brad Shields, which improves our lineout. It’s tough on Chris Robshaw as he has been an outstanding player for us but I know he will bounce back.“Danny Cipriani has been training well and doing everything that has been asked of him.”“We’ve come here to win the series. We’ve had a very good preparation this week and the intensity and executions in those sessions are going to put us in a good position for Saturday.“The way the team has come together has been superb. Owen Farrell, with a number of the senior players, has really moulded the squad together. They are working hard to improve their game to make sure we win.“When you have a win like South Africa did on Saturday, you come into the game with a bit of confidence, so we have to dent the Springboks’ confidence early. Bloemfontein is a very fast ground at altitude. It has an average of 60 points per Test match so we’re anticipating an ebb-and-flow type game like we had in Johannesburg.”Press briefing: Paul Gustard, England’s defence coach, talks to the media in Umhlanga Rocks (Getty)Any interesting statistics?* Tendai Mtawarira becomes the first Springbok prop to win 100 caps, bearing in mind John Smit played mostly at hooker. He’s only the second southern hemisphere prop to achieve the feat, after All Black Tony Woodcock.* This will be the third meeting of the sides in Bloemfontein. In 2000, England won 27-22, a landmark victory on their way to winning the World Cup. Jonny Wilkinson climbed off his sickbed to land eight penalties and a drop-goal. His 27 points is a joint record for a player against the Boks, a figure matched by Rob Andrew and Gerald Merceron.* In 2007 it was the opposite story, an injury and illness-ravaged England side falling to their heaviest defeat by South Africa, 58-10. Mike Brown was one of five England debutants in that match, alongside Matt Cairns, Darren Compton, Dean Schofield and Roy Winters.Pausing for breath: the teams scrum down in the first Test, a match that produced 81 points (Getty)What time does it kick off and is it on TV?The match at Toyota Stadium kicks off at 4.05pm UK time on Saturday and is live on Sky Sports. There will also be live commentary on BBC Radio 5 live and online.The referee is Frenchman Romain Poite, taking charge of his 58th Test. His assistant referees are Glen Jackson and Ben O’Keeffe, both of New Zealand. Ireland’s Simon McDowell will again fulfil TMO duties.What are the line-ups?SOUTH AFRICA: Willie le Roux; S’busiso Nkosi, Lukhanyo Am, Damian de Allende, Aphiwe Dyantyi; Handré Pollard, Faf de Klerk; Tendai Mtawarira, Bongi Mbonambi, Frans Malherbe, RG Snyman, Franco Mostert, Siya Kolisi (capt), Pieter-Steph du Toit, Duane Vermeulen.Replacements: 16 Akker van der Merwe, 17 Steven Kitshoff, 18 Thomas du Toit, 19 Jean-Luc du Preez, 20 Sikhumbuzo Notshe, 21 Ivan van Zyl, 22 Jesse Kriel, 23 Warrick Gelant.ENGLAND: Elliot Daly; Jonny May, Henry Slade, Owen Farrell (capt), Mike Brown; George Ford, Ben Youngs; Mako Vunipola, Jamie George, Kyle Sinckler, Joe Launchbury, Maro Itoje, Brad Shields, Tom Curry, Billy Vunipola.Replacements: 16 Luke Cowan-Dickie, 17 Joe Marler, 18 Harry Williams, 19 Mark Wilson, 20 Nathan Hughes, 21 Ben Spencer, 22 Danny Cipriani, 23 Denny Solomona.

Episcopal Church releases new prayer book translations into Spanish and French, solicits feedback Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs July 19, 2014 at 1:50 pm Hi,For years, I have been trying to locate a song I sang while I was in the men and boys’ choir at St. John’s Episcopal Church in Youngstown, Ohio. We sang it during the Christmas season.It has a beautiful melody. The words started out ; DAYLIGHT HAS COME AND THY NIGHT SHADOWS FALL, SLEEP ON LITTLE SON, SLEEP ON….. other words I remember are; THEN IN THE DAWNING, NO CRYING HE MAKES, SLEEP ON LITTLE SON, SLEEP ON, SLEEP ON LITTLE SON, SLEEP ON.Hope you can help!Thanks!Sincerely,Ed Kempers AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis [Episcopal News Service] As inevitable as Advent wreaths and Christmas pageants, music fills Episcopal churches throughout the holiday season. Congregations embrace services of Lessons and Carols and performances of Handel’s “Messiah” as choir directors seek to provide a balance of the beloved and familiar with new works illuminating the miracle of the Incarnation.Unlike in shopping malls – and some other denominations – the music of December is not Christmas carols but Advent hymns during the four weeks before the Nativity.This was a new experience after growing up Methodist, recalled Marilyn Keiser, music professor emeritus of Indiana University and music director at Trinity Episcopal Church, Bloomington, Indiana.“That was a change for me, or at least a learning experience,” she said. “We really wait to sing Christmas carols and Christmas music until Christmas Eve. But there are so many wonderful themes in Advent.”The Advent hymns match the lectionary, with ones such as “On Jordan’s Banks the Baptist Cries” and “There’s a Voice in the Wilderness Crying” to accompany readings about John the Baptist and settings of the Magnificat and “The Angel Gabriel” to follow this year’s Advent 4 Gospel of the Annunciation, she said.“The music of Advent is so rich,” she said. “I think it’s my favorite liturgical season.”During Advent, “we have quieter music during Communion,” she said. “We sometimes have had the psalms sung, plainsong, in the back of the church – with handbells. Just things to kind of give a quieter feel to the service, more contemplative.“I really appreciate that, with all the hubbub around the commercial aspects of Christmas. And I think that’s one of the really nice things about the music of Advent. Although much of it is still joyous – ‘Prepare the Way, O Zion’ and things like that – there also are more contemplative hymns: ‘Creator of the Stars of Night’; ‘O Come, O Come Emmanuel.’”The latter stems from the monastic tradition.Monks and nuns chant the psalter in a set order during daily services in a rhythm that doesn’t change with the seasons. But the antiphons before and after the psalms and canticles do change, explained Brother Scott Borden, prior at Holy Cross Monastery, an Anglican Benedictine community in West Park, New York. “So at the beginning of Advent, we switch to a whole different set of antiphons, and they’re meant to call us into the Advent season in various ways.”Probably the best known of these are the “O Antiphons” for the Magnificat in the days leading up to Christmas, he said. “O Come, O Come Emmanuel” is written using those antiphons.“There are many, many settings of them. They’ve inspired composers over the years,” he said. “I think they’re set probably in every language where the Christian church is present. … They take seven names that Isaiah uses to refer to God: Emmanuel, Wisdom, Root of Jesse, Key of David … We’re looking at this incarnational event of Christmas, and this is what’s being incarnated. These are the names of God coming out of the Jewish tradition, where you couldn’t say the name of God.”Jazz musician Isaac Everett once composed an instrumental arrangement of “O Come, O Come Emmanuel” for concertina, oboe, guitar, flute, drum set and didjeridu. A similar version appears on his first album, “Rotation.” As minister of liturgical arts at The Crossing, an emerging church meeting at the Cathedral Church of St. Paul in Boston, he often composes music for amateur musicians in the congregation to play during worship.“Even if you can only get three notes out, I’ll write something for you,” he said. “We’re honoring the gifts that are in this community … For me as a musician and composer, it’s one of the most rewarding ministries – helping people play music who either haven’t been given the space to do it or have kind of forgotten their love of it or don’t believe they have the ability to do it.”Similarly, he sees congregational singing – with everyone participating as part of the gathered body of Christ – as particularly meaningful in Advent leading to the Incarnation at Christmas.Worshipers sit close together in a circle at The Crossing to encourage congregational singing. Photo courtesy of Isaac Everett“I think Advent is a much earthier season. It’s when divinity comes to earth,” Everett said. Getting everyone singing together in a circle, close enough for their voices to blend, is a “profound statement,” he said. “It’s a much more visible witness to what we believe the kingdom of God actually is and what it looks like, and we’re rehearsing it in our worship. … The kingdom is not a kingdom in which we all sit and listen to professional singers.”The Crossing often uses secular music for Advent, such as “Waiting in Vain” by Bob Marley, “Waiting for the Miracle” by Leonard Cohen and “When a Man Comes Around” by Johnny Cash, as well as tunes such as “O Come, O Come Emmanuel.” Because it’s a penitential season, they often begin the service with a musical confession such as this one from his album, “Transmission,” Everett said.Christmas brings the familiar carols. “Those songs are so great, and we get to sing them so rarely, and everyone knows them,” he said. While Advent is a time to “get creative and think outside the box liturgically, Christmas comes around and we’re exchanging presents and singing carols, and we’re really in the box” – but that’s also very comforting, he said.For many Episcopalians, services of Advent or Christmas festivals of lessons and music, found in the Episcopal Book of Occasional Services, provide an opportunity to sing and listen to carols both new and familiar.“The tradition of [Christmas] Lessons and Carols is sort of engrained in the Anglican choral tradition,” said John Scott, director of music at St. Thomas Episcopal Church, Fifth Avenue, in New York.The choir of St. Thomas’ Episcopal Church, Fifth Avenue, New York, in procession at the end of a service.E.W. Benson, who became archbishop of Canterbury, created the first service of nine alternating Scripture readings and carols for use in the wooden shed serving as his cathedral in Truro, England, for Christmas Eve 1880. Other churches adapted the format, and King’s College, Cambridge, began holding its Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols in 1918. Millions of people around the world listen to the annual BBC broadcast of the service, which always begins with the hymn “Once in Royal David’s City” and includes a new commissioned carol.“It tells the whole story of our redemption, if you like, from the fall of Adam to the birth of Christ,” Scott said. “Around that, I think, it’s possible to build a very imaginative sequence of carols and hymns.”People enjoy the chance to sing well-known carols, he said. “Into that sort of framework, the musical director has the opportunity to interweave carols of a different sort of nature each year that can respond to the readings that can reflect and also comment on them. … It has great opportunity for creative thought.”The St. Thomas choir of men and boys sings a full Lessons and Carols service twice the Sunday before Christmas, plus will offer shorter carol services Dec. 17 and 21 and one Christmas Eve when the rector blesses the crèche and delivers his Christmas message for children. And on Dec. 15, the boys from the choir – students at St. Thomas’ choir school – will sing Benjamin Britten’s “Ceremony of Carols” along with John Rutter’s “Dancing Day.”While it doesn’t call it a carol service, St. Thomas also does four lessons with accompanying music preceding choral Eucharist to begin Advent, beginning by singing Palestrina’s “Matins Responsory” from the church’s great staircase. “In no way are we trying to anticipate Christmas,” Scott said, describing it as “ringing in the new ecclesiastical year.”This year’s music for the Advent 1 procession included a musical setting of the Benedictus, “Drop Down, Ye Heavens” by Judith Weir, Anton Bruckner’s “Ave Maria” and the hymn “Come Thou Redeemer of the Earth.” (On-demand audio links of various performances at St. Thomas can be found here.)Beyond traditional hymns and carols, one of the musical works most associated with Christmas is the “Messiah.”The St. Thomas choir will perform the “Messiah” on Dec. 6 and 8. “That’s an annual tradition where the church is packed,” Scott said.Some churches host “Messiah” sing-alongs instead of performances, with audience members invited to sing all the choruses.St. James’ Episcopal Church in Lothian, Maryland, recently held its 25th annual community sing-along of Part One of “Messiah” plus the “Hallelujah Chorus.”Singers pack St. James’ Church, Lothian, for the 25th “Messiah” Sing-Along on Nov. 27. Michael Ryan, church music director, conducted the performance, which featured a chamber ensemble plus organ and trumpets for the “Hallelujah Chorus.” Photo/Val Hymes“In the past five or six years, we’ve had sponsors at the church that cover the costs of the musicians, and we’ve used it as a fundraiser for the Salvation Army,” said Music Director Michael Ryan. “I don’t think we’ve ever had less than 100 singers … and then some people just come to listen. In our little 18th-century building, it sounds like the Mormon Tabernacle Choir when we get going.”“After the performance is over, we feed everybody,” he said. “It’s quite a nice community event.”Other options are available for those looking to perform a less-familiar holiday work.For its intergenerational Christmas pageant, Trinity, Bloomington, has performed “The Winter Star” by Malcolm Williamson. “It tells the story of the first Christmas, and it’s just beautiful,” Keiser said. The show lasts about 20 minutes, with a cast of 25 to 30 people portraying everyone from angels and shepherds to children in their beds.The music was very accessible, Keiser said. It concludes with a procession to the manger and the singing of “Glory to God” as a six-part round.Another contemporary work, “The Cantata of the Animals: Animalium Cantata,” was premiered in December 1996 by the Harmonium Choral Society, conducted by Anne Matlack, music director at Grace Episcopal Church in Madison, New Jersey. Matlack was looking to commission a new Christmas work and chose a libretto of poems about the animals at the manger written by her future husband, Jabez Van Cleef (they married the year the piece debuted). New York composer Elliot Levine set it to music.“There is a strain of person that wants everything to be precisely the same every year at Christmas,” Van Cleef said. “There is another strain of person that gets mighty tired of the ‘Nutcracker’ and the ‘Messiah’ being the big stuff and the sort of traditional English carols with a little French thrown in being the rest of it, music-wise. We wanted to provide choruses with an alternative that was … up-to-date with the world that we now live in, without offending anybody, but that would be big enough to be programmed as the centerpiece in a Christmas musical event.”The cantata “told the story of Christmas as it was viewed by animals, acting on the principle that the animals were there first, and that that meant something,” he said. “It’s one thing to say that animals are there, but it’s another thing to say, ‘Yes, that’s the right way. That’s the way God intended it to be.’”Van Cleef said he wanted to convey Christianity’s message of social equalization, “so that even a spider has a soul.” He explores the theological question around people’s places in society by having the animals sing: “Are some born to lead, some follow? Is this law the one God gave?”He also incorporated an environmental message, with the baby singing (“I figure he’s God, anyway, he should be able to sing a song”) that marks the “birth of a holistic consciousness, the ability to sort of see the whole thing at once working together.”Musically, the nine-movement piece requires an SATB chorus, with multiple solos and duets, and accompaniment by cello, flute and English horn or oboe. It has been performed 20 to 30 times, including at Yale University and in Tokyo, Van Cleef said. “They had to translate the words into Japanese.”Whatever the repertoire, music can provide a powerful draw to the church.“Music is a very powerful and strong evangelistic tool,” Scott said.And it’s meaningful for the musicians.“Each year, pieces speak to me in a different sort of way,” Scott said. “A line of a hymn can sometimes leap out at you in a way that you never thought of it before.”— Sharon Sheridan is an ENS correspondent.

It would be helpful, however, to downplay the idea of Advent as a penitential season. It is instead a season of preparation and expectation. It is for this reason some denominations, including the Episcopal Church, encourage the use of the liturgical color blue and not violet, as in Lent. Further, the concept of Gaudete Sunday as the third Sunday of Advent does not agree with the Revised Common Lectionary now in use. Only in Year C is the “rejoice” reading used. Presently we are in Year B and although there is a kind of “rejoice” second reading it is not the one for Gaudete Sunday. In light of this many churches have adopted four blue candles for the Advent Wreath.
