The sermons of the Unitarian Society of Germantown in Philadelphia, PA

5.18.14, Music of the Night, Music Director Mark Daugherty and the USG Choir

NOTE THIS WILL BE THE FIRST SUNDAY WITH THE SINGLE SERVICE AT 10:30am.
No, not from Phantom of the Opera, but rather the incredibly beautiful music of Morten Lauridsen. A few years ago the choir presented his Lux Aeterna and everyone loved it. This time we present three Nocturnes, or songs of the night. The pieces are
ravishingly romantic settings of poetry by Rainer Maria Rilke, Pablo Neruda, and James Agee. This is music of the senses – at once incredibly introspective and intimate and so lushly romantic.  It is not a morning to sleep in!
