      20th c. British Masters, California Bach Society

      Join us as we present two British masterworks inspired in part by the revival of the Renaissance polyphonic style of such composers as Thomas Tallis and William Byrd. Ralph Vaughan Williams's beautiful Mass in G minor is written in a modal style that evokes the past, while Herbert Howells's sublime Requiem employs impressionistic sonorities to achieve its overwhelming emotional effect. These two works, like those of their predecessors, envelop the listener in a unique sound world shaped by the pure choral timbre that reverberated through the soaring architecture of Britain's many cathedrals and chapels. 8 pm Friday February 28, 2020 at St. Mark's Lutheran Church, 1111 O'Farrell St at Franklin, San Francisco. Advance tickets sales end 2/27 at 5 pm. Tickets will be available at the door. Other Cal Bach events
