I was told that we had ‘a very nice listing’ for Thursday’s concert in the New York Times. Our conductor did not lie:
★ Choir of St. Luke in the Fields (Thursday) This excellent ensemble, which mixes in contemporary premieres with its regular diet of classic masses and motets, gives what it calls the first New York performance of C. P. E. Bach’s powerfully dramatic “St. Matthew Passion” from 1769, the score of which was rediscovered only 12 years ago in a Kiev storeroom. David Shuler conducts the choir and an orchestra of period instruments. At 8 p.m., Church of St. Luke in the Fields, 487 Hudson Street, at Grove Street, West Village , (212) 414-9419, concerts.stlukeinthefields.org; $30, or $20 for students and seniors. (Woolfe)
With a star no less. 🙂
If you would like to attend, it is quite beautiful (if I say so myself). Tickets available here. If the price keeps you from coming, let me know and I can likely get a comp for you. Let me know by Wednesday night. Thanks!
