Music: Sun Sep 25


This morning’s Gathering Music celebrates the work of Unitarian composer Edvard Grieg, whose work looked towards the future in its harmonic daring while remaining firmly rooted in the folk traditions of his native Norway. The Offertory centers the upcoming Jewish New Year Rosh Hashana with a traditional Hasidic melody arranged by the Detroit-born Schoenfield. The CUUC Choir is also on hand with the Spiritual “Hush, Somebody’s Calling My Name” as well as a Jewish folk song based on Psalm 133. Read on for programming details, and stay tuned for spoken introductions.
