Sacred music of the Tudor composers Tallis, Gibbons, Byrd, and others, forms a foundation for the Anglican repertoire. They also were a great influence on and inspiration to composers nearer to our time, including Howells and Vaughan Williams. Join Peter DuBois as we listen to music exploring those connections.

On Monday, August 21 a total solar eclipse will darken the skies across the continental United States from Oregon to South Carolina. It's the first eclipse that will be seen from coast to coast in 99 years. The “Path of Totality,” where the sun appears to be completely covered, will be about 70 miles wide. Outside the Path of Totality, many of us will see a partial solar eclipse with only a portion of the sun covered by the moon.
Here in Rochester and the Finger Lakes, we will see approximately 70% coverage of the sun. The partial eclipse will last about 2½ hours, beginning at 1:14 pm and ending at 3:52 pm. The maximum coverage will be at 2:35 pm.
English novelist and philosopher Aldous Huxley once said, “After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.” Sacred music is humanity’s ultimate effort to express what we cannot ever fully comprehend – beauty, wonder, happiness, peace.
The music Peter DuBois presents each week is listened to, sung, played, and loved on every continent, in almost every country on earth. It is an art that is marked by both great traditions and great changes. From Temple Psalmody to Gregorian chant, to Reformation and Revolution, to the 21st Century Church, sacred music has told the story of faith and spirituality through the centuries.
