About the Event
Martin Luther believed that music holds a special place in our lives by connecting us to the Divine in profound ways. His own hymn texts and compositions have inspired composers for generations whose works are now inescapably connected to our rich Lutheran heritage.
We invite you to tune in for a special livestream concert featuring music of the Reformation. Martina Bingham (soprano), Sarah Lambert Connelly (mezzo-soprano), Tomás Romas (tenor), and Scott Fikse (bass-baritone) will perform works by composers who set some of Luther’s most famous texts to music. The cornerstone piece of the evening will be Mendelssohn’s rarely heard setting of Aus Tiefer Not Schrei’ ich zu dir (Out of the depths I cry to you), a choral motet organized into 5 beautifully unique movements. The quartet is joined by virtuoso keyboardist Maika‘i Nash, who will play what he describes as two of his “bucketlist” piano works—transcriptions of notable gems of the instrumental repertoire by J. S. Bach.
The concert will livestream on the LCH Facebook page at 7:00 pm on Thursday, October 29. A suggested donation of $10 may be made by mail or via PayPal (link coming soon). The concert program booklet will be available for download from this page the week of the concert.
