Due to some technical difficulties during last Sunday's service, we were unable to share images of St. Mark's beautiful colored glass windows during the Canticle. Not to worry! Mother Sylvia has created a five-minute video featuring the six fused and bonded colored glass windows in the Nave of St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, Albuquerque, NM, created by Caryl McHarney in 1964, based on Canticle 13, with accompanying music by Members of the Parish Choir of Christ Episcopal Church, Los Altos and the chamber choir Convivium in which they sing John Rutter's setting of Canticle 13, "Glory to You," from their homes during the COVID-19 outbreak. View Mother Sylvia's Canticle 13 Windows Video via YouTube here.
