A LENTEN VESPERS
Including the works of Lux Aeterna by Morten Lauridsen
Sunday, April 9
This Lenten Vespers service will include some liturgy, a homily, and a presentation of the musical work of Morten Lauridsen, Lux Aeterna, by the combined choirs of Third Church and River Road Presbyterian. This special piece of music is a meditative piece referencing procedures and characteristics from sacred music of the high Renaissance, especially the music of Palestrina and Josquin Desprez.
This work has been described as a serene and peaceful composition that penetrates the soul of the listener and performer. "May the light and peace of Christ surround and comfort you as you listen."
