Music for Use with the
Creation Season Service of Holy Eucharist

We feel that the writings, music, and traditions of our Christian faith are rich in seasonal and natural reflection. It is our current times that overlook the call to the earth, our home, from every nook and cranny of our historic spiritual practice. In support of this tradition, the MEESC has begun collecting and posting music that can be used to augment a traditional service or as part of one of an creation and environmental worship service.

If you seek our full listing of Hymns you can use, click here. Additional music options can be found in our various Creation Season projects.

A cycle can be done for a month, with each of the following topical areas covering one week. The titles below were used in the June 1999 Creation Season Liturgy used at St. Edward the Confessor Episcopal Church,Duluth, MN, with the notes as listed. The links, where availalbe, are to the index of titles.
