good friday concert

Our Good Friday service at Tenth Presbyterian is at noon, so this year the church decided to have an evening concert as a musical outreach to friends and the wider community, making use of the talents of our church choir (which included my lovely wife), chamber players, and several talented members of the congregation.

The concert was absolutely wonderful. The program consisted of Henryck Górecki's "Three Pieces in Old Style" (for string orchestra), J.S. Bach's "Concerto in D Minor for Two Violins," and W.A. Mozart's Requiem mass.

All the performances were outstanding. The concert was webcast live and an archive of the webcast is still available online (scroll down to "03/25/2005 - Good Friday Choral Concert"). I'd recommend giving it a listen.

If you'll be in Philly for Pentecost Sunday, May 15, we are having a Psalm Service that evening at 6:15pm featuring the Tenth Church choir singing Psalm settings all by living composers associated with Tenth church and who will all be present for the performance.
