Pro Arte to Present “Remembrance” Concert Sunday November 16

Spend a Sunday afternoon surrounded by glorious choral music, starting with the purity and simplicity of Renaissance motets, followed by the luxurious Romantic harmonies of Faure and Brahms as Pro Arte commemorates the start of the great war in 1914 and the bravery of our troops in Normandy in 1944.

Pro Arte Chorale’s first concert of the 2014-2015 season, Rememberance. will be presented on Sunday, November 16, 2014 at the West Side Presbyterian Church in Ridgewood, NJ beginning at 3pm. November is a month of remembrance as we observe All Saints Day and Veteran’s Day, also known as Remembrance Day in the United Kingdom for those who served and gave their lives in two World Wars and other conflicts. In honor of these days of remembrance, this concert features works of great beauty and reflection. Cantique de Jean Racine, and Requiem by Gabriel Fauré; two works by Victoria,one of the best-regarded composers of sacred music in the late Renaissance, and I am the resurrection and the life by Morley, considered to be one of the most famous composers of secular music
