Sacred on Saturday

In a series of three Saturday morning online presentations, Dr. Philip Cave, associate conductor for Chapel music, will explore notable pieces of sacred music. The presentations will place the music in its context, and examine its construction and musical language, so as to enrich the listener's experience of it.

Sometimes obscured by the frivolity of Halloween are the two liturgical Feasts of All Saints and All Souls. Commemorating the blessed and the departed, the church celebrates these days with music of remembrance and thanksgiving. In addition to plainsong chant, the music in this session includes pieces from composers Tomás Luis deVictoria, Orlande de Lassus, William Byrd, Charles Villiers Stanford, and Johann Sebastian Bach.
