Byrd’s Mass for 5 Voices frames this a cappella concert, which will sound otherworldly in the Cathedral. We’ll also present a new work by 2018 Pulitzer Prize finalist Michael Gilbertson and poet Kai Hoffman-Krull, featuring cellist Arthur Fiacco. The Mass is interspersed with vibrant works by Orlando Gibbons, Thomas Tallis, John Tavener, and Stephen Paulus, completing an evening of soothing and uplifting music.
Pre-Concert Recital by the Newark Boys Chorus at 7:00 PM.
