Upcoming meetings

SATURDAY, MAY 18, AT 1:30 PM

David Hurd conducts "To Spring and Spirit...and More"

 

On May 18th, we will play in the reverberant acoustics of the nave of the church.  An assortment of seasonal music including spring-referencing works and, since it is the Eve of Pentecost, pieces referencing the Holy Spirit will be played. Works transcribed from choral and organ pieces as well as some originally intended for recorders, baroque to modern, are included. Composers include J. S. Bach, Nicolas de Grigny, Stephen Foster, David Hurd, Frank Shirley, Healey Willan, and Alec Wyton.  –David Hurd

SATURDAY, APRIL 20, AT 1:30 PM

NYRG Music Director Deborah Booth conducts

"One of Each – Music of the Renaissance and Baroque"

In our January session we focused on the music of John Dowland and Johann Sebastian Bach. Many of you mentioned that you liked playing pieces by only two composers, so I will try this idea again. For this session I would like to explore music of Orlando di Lasso (1532-1594), a leading composer of the late Renaissance in the Franco-Flemish school. His music varies a great deal in style and genres, which gave him unprecedented popularity throughout Europe. Our Baroque composer will be Telemann (1681-1767), one of the most prolific composers in music history. –Deborah Booth

​"Sing We and Chant it – A Spring Celebration"

led by Daphna Mor


Spring is almost here! (It officially begins on March 19th.) Let’s celebrate the renewal of nature and spirit with love songs and madrigals by Thomas Morley, John Farmer, Adrian Willaert, Philippe Verdelot, and more. We will be sure to add some lively dances for the Shepherds and Nymphs. "How happy is the day…we see why all round, troops of friends are assembled here.”
