The St. Cecilia Society at St. Mary Church is pleased to present its annual benefit St. Cecilia's Day Concert on Friday, 19 November 2010 at 7:45 P.M. The St. Mary's Schola Cantorum, under the direction of David Hughes, will sing polyphony from the Códice del Convento del Carmen, Mexico City. The pieces sung from this notable manuscript, the original of which is now lost, will include works of Francisco López Capillas, Fernando Franco, Francisco Guerrero, and Juan de Lienas. It will be an exciting evening of some of the most beautiful sacred music of the Iberian and Latin-American Renaissance!
Vespers in the Extraordinary Form for the Feast of St. Elisabeth of Hungary will be sung at 7:00 P.M., with the concert immediately to follow. A festive wine & cheese reception will conclude the evening. Suggested donation is $25 general admission, $15 for students & seniors; all proceeds go to support the work of the St. Cecilia Society throughout the year.
