A Word About These Recordings

These recordings are all recorded live during our services using two small, unobtrusive microphones hanging from the ceiling. We think these recordings are pretty good but for the full experience please visit us in person! We were established in 1826 in Nashua, New Hampshire. Our Internet home is uunashua.org.

Our minister is Rev. Allison Palm and our director of faith formation is Sadie Kahn-Green. Our pianist, organist, choir director, and music director are all Jared (Jed) Holland.

One part of many services is called Joys and Concerns. It is too personal to be posted, but here is a sample of the words and music that are said and sung, with the personal information removed: Joys and Concerns.

Services are shown below, most recent first. Using the 'select group' dropdown, you can view previous years one year at a time. For each service, the elements are listed generally as they appear in the printed Order of Service. Click the blue play button following an item to hear it.

We are now also doing live streaming of our services on Sundays at 10 am, then repeating them again at 3 pm and 7 pm that day.

Recordings from the January 27, 2019 service         
Date recorded: January 27, 2019
Today's service, led by Rev Allison Palm, is "We Could Be Wrong". In Unitarian Universalism, we believe that there are many truths, and that we cannot be certain that we know everything. How do we live with the possibility that we might be wrong? Today we also have quite a bit of wonderful music! Our low brass quartet is trombonists Anthony Iovino and Kathy Grossman, and euphonium players Lindsey Hedrick and Maggie Woolsey. Our Music Team sings the Introit MLK with the help of a couple of friends. Music Team members are soloist Kathy Grossman, Jed Holland, Steve Hedges, Geri Davidson, Ruth Cannava, Brenna Woods and Kathleen Griffis. Friends helping today are Steve Ladew and Emma Rearick. And finally, one of our choir anthems is accompanied by Suellen Davidson on clarinet!

Recordings from the January 20, 2019 service         
Date recorded: January 20, 2019
This service, entitled "The Possibility of Change" is our annual service marking Martin Luther King Jr. Day. A heavy snowstorm in New Hampshire on this Sunday caused the service in our Sanctuary to be cancelled. Undaunted, our courageous congregation made this the Unitarian Universalist Church of Nashua's first Sunday service to be held using the audio-video teleconferencing application, Zoom. The service is led by Rev. Allison Palm and our Director of Faith Formation, Sadie Kahn-Green with assistance from Worship Associate, Jess Woods. Over Zoom, all congregational songs and choir anthems were replaced by recordings, which have not been included here for copyright reasons.

Recordings from the April 8, 2018 service         
Date recorded: April 8, 2018
Today's wonderful service is led by Rev Allison Palm, with Faith Formation director Sadie Kahn-Greene and Music Director Jed Holland. There are many beautiful parts, from the powerful anthems to the moving reflections. When listening to the Ritual of Lamentation and Intention, imagine everyone going to four stations: one to lament and speak your sorrow, one to petition the universe for help, one to write your hopes and fears, and one to say aloud something you will do to move our faith forward.
