FROM DARKNESS INTO LIGHT:

Music that expresses the inexpressible

 

"He uncover the deeps out of darkness and brings deep darkness to light."  - Job 12:22


Hans Christian Andersen wrote that “When words fail, music speaks.”  During this extraordinary time, Sean McCarthy has planned a special Lenten concert program of organ music that seeks to express the inexpressible, featuring works by Jehan Alain, Samuel Barber, Eugène Gigout, Marcel Dupré, Gustav Holst, and Théodore Dubois.  Interspersed throughout the program will be sacred vocal solos charting the course of Passion Week from the darkness of Gethsemane to the brilliant light of Easter morning, including music by Charles Gounod, Gabriel Fauré, and Ralph Vaughan Williams, as well as moving arrangements of beloved spirituals by Moses Hogan.

POSTPONED UNTIL SUNDAY, APRIL 10, 2022
