Music Sunday: the Congolese Mass, Missa Luba, and "In Principio" by Arvo Part.

UUCSR Choir and Soloists
The Orchestra at Shelter Rock
Stephen Michael Smith, Music Director

Music has been intertwined with sacred practice and observance through the ages. At the core of drumming, tolling of bells and chant (to cite just a few examples) is a simple, repetitive rhythm. We will experience the transcendence of repetitive rhythm in two very different works, the Congolese Missa Luba, and the music of contemporary minimalistic mystic, Arvo Part, in his acclaimed masterwork, In Principio.

This performance will take place in the context of a worship service. The general public is cordially invited. No admission – a free will offering will be taken to benefit music scholarships for Nassau County high school musicians.
