NEW Vocal Recital Series begins November 2015!
Friday, November 20, 2015 • immediately following the 12:10 pm Mass. • Free lunch time program
"Motets pour la Vierge", a program of petits (little) sacred pieces by the French Baroque composer Marc-Antoine Charpentier. These devotional works each honor an event in the life of the Blessed Virgin, from her conception to ascension. This delightful and spiritually- rich music will be performed by mezzo-soprano Cynthia Holman, countertenor Christopher Holman, and a chamber ensemble of two violins, organ, lute, and gamba (an ancestor of the cello), who will be performing on period instruments from the 1700s.
