Year of Lamentations: A Sunday of Spirituals – 11am Choral Eucharist, Lunch, 3pm Concert
Sun, October 14, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm
African-American spirituals arose as a musical and poetical language to express the desire for many kinds of freedom, during and after the epoch of slavery in the USA. Spirituals provide the choral and congregation music for the 11am Choral Eucharist sung by St John’s professional choir. Lunch follows the Eucharist. At 3pm the Schiller Institute NYC Chorus presents a concert of African-American and other spirituals. Eucharist and lunch are, of course, free. For tickets for the concert ($10-$20) see stjvny.org
