Special Easter music will be rendered by the choir and quartet of the Wilmette Presbyterian Church at both services on Sunday. The choir will open the 11 o'clock service with Dudley Buck's beautiful Te Deum in B Minor. George stump will sing Granier's classic "Eastser Son." Barphy's "Awake Thou My Glory" will be sung by a quartet composed of Mrs. Charles Bergh, soprano; Mrs. Frank R. Eager, contralto; Mr. George Stump, tenor and Mr. Walter D. Lawrence, baritone. At the afternoon service at 5 o'clock a choir of 24 voices will give Dudley Buck's "Story of the Cross." This most beautiful of Easter cantatas tells the story of Jesus suffering at the hands of Pilate and the Jews and ends with a song of rejoicing because of his resurrection. It begins withthe consipiracy of the high priests and follows Jesus through this trial before Pilate to his death on the cross. The stirring accusation passage is sung by a male chorus, and the last seven words of Jesus on the cross are sung with an accompaniment of ladies' voices. The part of Jesus will be sung by M. George Stump and that of Pilate by Mrs. S. R. Kerr. The other soloists will be, Mrs. Charles Bergh, Mrs. Frank Eager, and Mr. Walter Lawrence.
