Christ Episcopal Church will present “Come and See: a Service of the Light,” Sunday, October 4th at 4 p.m. This service is an invitation to families, parishioners and new comers who cannot fit early Sunday services into their busy schedules. This service is dedicated to the memory of Peter Hannaford who worked tirelessly to reestablish family worship into our community.

This unique worship service held at sunset is approximately one hour long and will be followed by a social time with cider, cookies and the opportunity to discuss the meaning of the sermon with the presiding priest, Mother Leslie McCloghrie.

This is the first service in a series being held on the first Sunday of each month in The Chapel of our Merciful Savior located on 15th and G Streets in Eureka. These services of prayers and hymns offer an opportunity to all to reestablish church attendance into their lives.

Sunday, July 26, 4:00 p.m.:
“Fanfare, Sonatas, & Vignettes: with Historic Brass, Violin, & Key- board”


On July 27, 4 pm, an Early Music concert with “Trumpet Consort von Humboldt” and “á due” (an early music ensemble from Eugene, OR) will be held at Christ Episcopal Church (15th and H Streets, Eureka). This “Sundays at 4” concert is free and open to the public. A free will offering will be collected to support the musicians.

Please join us as we travel back to earlier musical eras. The ensemble “á due” (Holly Roberts, violin; Bodie Pfost, sackbut (trombone) and Margret Gries, harpsichord) will perform sonate concertate from the 17th-century, including music by Dario Castello, Giovanni Battista Fontana, and others. The music performed by this group of early music specialists from Eugene, Oregon features two solo lines of music (violin and trombone), hence the name “á due,” with continuo keyboard playing a bass line with improvised chords.

The program also features Humboldt’s own “Trumpet Consort von Humboldt,” in a short program of trumpet ensemble music ranging from the time of Sir Francis Drake and Elizabethan England, to baroque Germany and Prussia, and then to early 19th-century France. The seven members of the trumpet consort, led by HSU music professor Gil Cline, are Chris Cox, Ryan Brown, Andrew Henderson, Molly Harvis, Audrey McCombs, and Cline (trumpets) and Kevin Amos, drum. Dressed in costume, they will be playing six “real deal” natural trumpet copies without valves, with the drummer on a period-style rope tension drum.

Come and experience the music of earlier times with these two talented groups of musicians and have an opportunity to learn about both the instruments and the music from a group of early music specialists.
Off-street parking is available at the corner of 14th and G Streets. Handicapped accessible entrance is on 15th Street, between G and H Streets.
