Music: Sun Sep 25

Wedding ceremonies embody a ubiquitous form of covenanting. Depictions of Norwegian country weddings by Unitarian composer Edvard Grieg are featured in Sunday morning’s musical Prelude. Check out the homepage of CUUC’s website for a preview of Adam Kent’s performance of Wedding Day at Troldhaugen. Elsewhere, the CUUC Choir presents several joyous selections, including an arrangement of a traditional African melody. Native American culture is also on display in the Offertory, in the form of a short piece from American Edward MacDowell’s New England Idyls. Read on for programming details.
