Glory Be To Thee O Lord: Songs of Faith, Hope and Love

Add to My Calendar Tickets

Thursday, May 11, 2017
7:30 pm Saint Thomas Church

This mix of twentieth century sacred and secular music begins with Copland’s famous setting of the opening words of the Book of Genesis and ends with the very last verse of the Bible, “The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all, Amen” set by Carl Rütti. Eric Whitacre’s rock-star quality shines through in his Three Songs of Faith. And the legendary pianist and composer George Shearing encapsulates “creation” with his undeniably American jazz influence in his Songs and Sonnets from Shakespeare.

“I consider [George Shearing] one of the greatest musical minds I've ever been around…” Dave Brubeck
