An Evening of Sacred Chant: A Millennium of Soaring Mystical Sound

Directed by Rip Jackson

Sunday, April 28, 2024, at 7:30 PM

First Parish in Lexington

Come and center inward, touching your deepest, truest self, as you are enfolded in the peaceful, healing, transcendent music of sacred chant—mystical music ancient and modern from Western, Eastern, and African traditions—performed by the First Parish Festival Choir and guest soloists, and directed by Rip Jackson. The evening’s candlelit program will include Gregorian chant, antiphons by Hildegard Von Bingen, Medieval polyphony, Renaissance masterpieces, Russian Orthodox hymns, Hindu mantras, African sacred music, and modern mystical a capella music. The concert will take place on Sunday, April 28, 2024 at 7:30 PM at First Parish in Lexington.  A free-will offering will be received, and public parking is available in the rear of the church.
