TENET CELEBRATES ST. CECILIA, PATRON SAINT OF MUSIC, WITH PROGRAM DEVOTED TO PURCELL
On St. Cecilia’s Day, November 22, 2014, TENET honors the patroness of music with a program devoted to Henry Purcell, the preëminent 17th-century English composer who was one of her most ardent aficionados. The concert, at the Church of St. Luke’s in the Fields on Hudson Street in Manhattan, celebrates the occasion with odes, secular cantatas and songs, as well as vocal and instrumental numbers from Purcell’s theater music. The program will be repeated on November 23 at St. Barnabas Church in Greenwich, Connecticut.
