Musica Sacra: Light of Light - Music of Lassus and Lauridsen, with Gregorian Chant

TUESDAY, MARCH 6, 2018
7:30 PM – 9 PM, GREAT CHOIR

This musical tour through the Renaissance extends back to the earliest roots of polyphony, with a performance of the great Flemish composer Orlando di Lassus’s Missa super Osculetur me and Josquin Des Prez’s extraordinary Ave Maria. Lassus’ exhilarating motet Surgens Jesus, and the vibrant American voices of Morten Lauridsen and Kevin Oldham make this program a sonic tour de force guaranteed to take you to another time and place.

Arrive by 7 pm to enjoy a pre-concert recital by the Concert Chorus of the Newark Boys Chorus School. The Musica Sacra performance will begin at 7:30 pm.
