Ave Maria: England’s Rose
May 4, 7:30 pm; Lakewood Congregational Church
May 5, 4:00 pm; St. Peter Cleveland
The Blessed Virgin Mary has been praised through music more than any other woman in western history. Our final program presents gems of the early English church by such composers as Dunstaple, Cornysh, and Fayrfax, alongside more familiar gents like Byrd, Tallis, and Philips. With Mother’s Day the following weekend, and a celebration of new life in Spring, what better way to REVIVE our spirits than honoring those who gave us life through some of the greatest choral music ever written.
