4:30 pm Reception (Front Porch), 5:00 pm Concert (Sanctuary)
Our Cantatas and Chamber Music series resumes on Sunday, October 3rd at 5:00 pm in the Sanctuary with a pre-concert outdoor reception at 4:30. The soloists of the Gallery Choir will perform Orlando di Lasso’s Missa Osculetur Me for double choir, a parody mass based on his luscious motet of the same name with text from the Song of Songs. Also featured will be works by Josquin and Ockeghem on the themes of love and loss. We ask that all audience members remain masked at all times while inside the church. The singers will not be masked while performing.
A special Cantatas and Chamber Virtual Performance featuring Buxtehude’s Membra Jesu Nostri. This breathtaking piece, often called the first Lutheran Oratorio, addresses parts of Christ’s body on the cross in 7 movements: To the feet, knees, hands, sides, breast, heart and face.
Katy Avery and Thann Scoggin presented a recital of baroque and modern vocal masterworks which are thematically relevant to our current times.
