Please see a description of the concert from maestro Harold Stover, St. Luke’s Parishioner below:

“The singers of Renaissance Voices and I are looking forward to welcoming you to “Eternal Light”, our spring concert at St. Luke’s on Saturday, May 13, at 7:30 PM. We’ll bring you a program of profound music that deals with last things and offers the consolation and hope that is expressed in the vision of eternal light. That vision is part is part of the ancient text of the Requiem Mass that will be heard in settings by the Renaissance master Tomás Luis de Victoria and the 21st-Century composers Carlotta Ferrari and Maine’s John Newell. You will also hear music from William Byrd, one of the English masters from the age of Shakespeare, the contemporary Australian composer Melissa Dunphy, and two very different versions of the beloved 23rd Psalm. The concert concludes with the meeting across three centuries of two great visionary minds: the writer John Bunyan and the composer Ralph Vaughan Williams. We hope that this music will bring a touch of eternal light into the here and now of our busy lives.”

The event is finished.
