Saint John’s Seminary hosts a gala concert of Sacred Choral Music from the Spanish Renaissance on Friday, August 3rd at 7:30 pm in the seminary chapel at 127 Lake Street in Brighton. The concert is presented by the 43-voice choir of Early Music Academy Boston, who are wrapping up a week of intensive study and rehearsal with guest tutors Andrew Carwood, Janet Coxwell, and David Woodcock. Featured works include Requiem by Victoria, and motets by Guerrero, Padilla, and Vivanco.

The concert is open to the public and free, although donations are appreciated. A friend of our congregation, Janet Hunt, is the seminary music director and administrator for the course, as well as a member of the choir.
