SPECTRUM SINGERS PERFORM AT THE GLOUCESTER MEETINGHOUSE, SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 22 AT 3:00PM ~ Tolling the Bell for Paris
Tomorrow the Gloucester Meetinghouse will toll the Paul Revere bell in the Meetinghouse tower at 2:45pm, 15 minutes prior to the Spectrum Singers concert. We will do this in honor of those who died or are suffering in Paris, the worldwide victims of terrorism or intolerance, and affirmation of our precious heritage of religious freedom.
The concert was planned before the tragic events in Paris but speaks to our common humanity through musical settings of the psalms and prayers of the 3 Abrahamic faiths – Judaism, Christianity and Islam – including the premiere of a choral piece by Mohammed Fairouz. It concludes with the hauntingly beautiful setting of Psalm 90 by Charles Ives with the full chorus, soloists, bell choir, chimes and organ.
Whether you subscribe to a traditional religious practice or simply find a divine presence in nature…we hope you will join us for this meaningful community event.
