11/5 – Songs for the Spirit
Ryan Cox (baritone) and Jeffrey Arnold (piano and organ) are presenting a recital of spiritual music in the sanctuary of First Congregational Church of La Grange. The first half will be beautiful Psalm settings, powerful prayers in Hebrew and French, and songs of comfort by Schubert, Brahms and Strauss. The second half will partner the Biblical Songs of Antonin Dvorak, sung in Czech, with spirituals arranged by Henry Thacker “Harry” Burleigh. Burleigh was a student of Dvorak at the National Conservatory in New York and they highly respected and influenced each other.
No ticket needed, however, a free-will offering will be taken.
Please invite your music-loving friends!
