Special Music Sunday

  • Downtown United Presbyterian Church 121 Fitzhugh Street North Rochester, NY, 14614 United States (map)

The choir will present our annual Advent Special Music Offering.

This year will feature a Pastoral oratorio by French, Baroque composer, Marc-Antoine Charpentier. The instrumentation includes recorders, violins, harpsichord, and theorbo (a really big lute!). The characters include a chorus of shepherds and shepherdesses, a senior shepherd, an angel chorus, Mary, and Joseph. The music, both sprightly and mysterious, with its imaginative texts and bubbling textures will be a delight for all.
