Good Friday: A Tenebrae Service of Shadows
At the First Parish in Lincoln
In collaboration with the First Parish in Concord
Join us for an artful, contemplative “Tenebrae” service of shadows (with extinguished candlelight), following the passion story of Jesus’ journey to the cross, paired with poetry exploring the human condition and remarkable special music.
From Miranda Loud, Music Director:
You won’t want to miss this Good Friday service, which will be predominantly music and poetry, Biblical readings and meditation. Our choir will sing the Puccini Requiem and Lincoln soprano Ann Moss will sing many pieces, including the Pie Jesu from the Fauré Requiem, The Crucifixion by Samuel Barber, and other pieces in addition to a solo Bach movement for violin and continuo featuring her husband Justin Ouellet. They are extraordinary musicians, and I hope we will see a lot of them in the future! Check them out at www.annmosssoprano.com and www.justinouellet.com. Composer Jake Heggie writes of Ann Moss, “She has this magic quality that somehow makes composers want to write for her, because not only does she perform [their songs], she invests in them, physically, emotionally, personally. I think she’s a transformative artist, because she can cross genres so easily.”
