||8 PM (lecture at 7 PM) - MUSIC OF G.P. DA PALESTRINA -
'Palestrina’s historical reputation resembles that of no other composer in the history of music.’ So thunders Grove’s Dictionary of Music and Musicians and that is an accurate portrayal. The concert will feature Palestrina’s mighty Missa Tu es Petrus along with motets, hymns and canticles.
This concert, and a recording that will be made of it, are being supported by a gift in memory of Susan ("Susie") Gale.
