Join us on Saturday, November 17, 2018 at 7:30 pm for Two Very Different Sides of the Same Coin.

Through this concert, the audience member will experience two completely different sounding settings of the Latin Mass separated by over 400 years.

The Mass for Four Voices by William Byrd was composed in 1592-3 for a cappella choir (meaning no accompaniment).  It is a gorgeous Renaissance Mass.  Click here to listen to the final movement: “Agnus Dei” (“Lamb of God”). 

The Sunrise Mass by Ola Gjeilo (pronounced “YA – low) was composed in 2008 and is a lush, ethereal 21st century Mass.  It calls for a string orchestra as accompaniment.  Click here to listen to a portion of the final movement: “Pleni sunt caeli et terra gloria tua” (“Heaven and earth are full of your glory”).  Just scrumptious!
