Look around you today— You will see many people sporting various CCM pins. The oval, “Sponsor” pins are given to honor those people who have made an extraordinary financial contribution to CCM, of five hundred or more dollars to CCM in any one year. CCM could not exist without their generosity. Some of our volunteers will be wearing pins earned for service far beyond that required of CCM families. Many of these volunteers have given dozens, even hundreds of extra hours to CCM. No concert, no fundraiser, no newsletter, no tour, no CCM event could be produced without the generosity of our volunteers. Finally, you will see many pins proudly worn by our choristers. Every pin represents a period of extraordinary commitment, on the part of the student and the family, to braving the elements, overcoming illness, and laying other opportunities aside, in order to achieve exemplary attendance at CCM’s classes and rehearsals. Good attendance is the backbone of a polished performance, and while perfect and near-perfect attendance isn’t always possible, we honor those students who accomplish it. And look how many have accomplished it again and again! Taken together, CCM’s pins tell the story of a tremendous commitment—of time, effort, funds, determination and talent—all of which come together to produce today’s concert. If you’re reading this program, chances are that some of that commitment has come from you. So thank you, to all who have made today’s concert possible. We couldn’t have done it without you!


Children’s Chorus of Maryland

TEXTS AND TRANSLATIONS continued from page 17

Salmo 150 Praise the Lord in his sacred places, praise him in the firmament of his power.

Praise him for his mighty acts, praise him according to his excellent greatness. Praise him with the sound of the trumpet, praise him with the psaltery and the harp.

Praise him with the timbrel and the dance, praise him with strings and pipes. Praise him with high-sounding cymbals, praise him with cymbals of joy.

Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.

Tantum Ergo

Words by St. Thomas Aquinas c. 1264

Bowing low, let us worship so great a Sacrament. Let the ancient law give way to the new rite. Let faith strengthen our weakness. Offer praise and jubilation to the Begetter and Begotten. To both bring salvation, honor, power, and blessing. Praise them both equally.

Ha Shalom Peace shall be for all the world. All the world shall be for peace.

Traditional Hebrew

Giulia: We wish we could be there but please remember that we will be thinking of you. Love you lots, Big Gramps and Grams
