The World Beloved : A Bluegrass Mass May 22nd—9 am
Join us at St Peder’s on May 22nd for Carol Barnett’s glorious work “The World Beloved: A Bluegrass Mass”. Bringing together the classical choral style with down home verve of bluegrass, Barnett has put together a piece that will have you toe-tapping and head-bobbing to the traditional texts of a mass: Kyrie, Credo, Sanctus, etc. Barnett writes of her work “My highest hope is that listeners coming from one tradition—classical or bluegrass—and perhaps dubious about the other, might discover something new and wonderful in the combination, as I have.” We are certain that “The World Beloved” will scintillate and delight you. So grab your friends, come to St Peder’s at 9:00 am on the 22nd of May, settle in to a pew, and enjoy this exciting fusion of musical styles.
