Lacrymosa – WA Mozart (Requiem)
Rest Well – JS Bach (St. John Passion)
Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring – JS Bach
Libera me – Gabriel Faure (Requiem)
Hear My Prayer – Felix Mendelssohn
How Lovely is Thy Dwelling Place
– Johannes Brahms (German Requiem)
Love Bade Me Welcome – Ralph Vaughan Williams
Blessed Be the God and Father – SS Wesley
I checked, and ALL of these great, classical standards can be heard on youtube.com if you wish to get a sense of what type of music will be presented.
Tom, your host will be wearing a bright blue, long sleeved dress shirt and will stand near the entrance from 3:35 until 3:45 when we will enter and sit together. I will also wear a badge saying, "Tom, Meetup Group." Early arrival assures good seats.. If you arrive late, look for my bright blue shirt.This concert features open, free seating.
There is NO charge for this event, but freewill offerings are gladly accepted to help support future musical presentations.
