“Music in the Light of September 11” — Thurs., Sept. 8

The Renaissance Street Singers have been invited to participate, with four other Music Under New York groups, in a performance commemorating the September 11 attacks. The set runs from 4 to 9 at the Fifteenth Street Meetinghouse,* 15 Rutherford Place, in Manhattan, and is sponsored by the American Friends Service Committee and other organizations. I believe we’ll be on around 6:00. The other performers are: Gillen & Turk, Wendy Sayvetz, Baby Soda (a fun young fogeys band), and the Pura Gusto Ensemble.

The repertory for our set will be:

Lassus, Tristis est anima mea
(as grave as this is, it has a fairly broad musician’s joke: listen for “Vos fugam capietis”)
Finck, Gloria from the mass In summis
Guerrero, Clamabat autem mulier Chananaea
Josquin des Pres, Laudate, pueri, Dominum
Requiem aeternam round

*Shapenote friends, this is where the last two New York City All-Day Singings was held.
