Ralph Vaughan Williams's Five Mystical Songs

  • Southside Baptist Church 1016 19th Street South Birmingham, AL, 35205 United States

Throughout our Easter service we will be sharing the movements of Ralph Vaughan Williams's inspired musical settings of George Herbert's poetry, the Five Mystical Songs.  Our featured soloistwill be Kenny Gannon, who will be accompanied by a string quartet and piano (Diana Preoteasa) and our Southside Choristers.  The poems include "Easter" ("Rise, heart, thy Lord is risen" and other symbolic poems, culminating with "Antiphon" ("Let all the world in every corner sing my God and King!"

In addition to other traditional Easter hymns and celebratory music, the Five Mystical Songs will be a stunning experience on this coming Day of Resurrection.  Invite someone to join us for this always-special worship service!
