Sounds of Stow Chorus
The Sounds of Stow Chorus is excited to present Carol Barnett’s “The World Beloved: A Bluegrass Mass” together with Southern Rail, one of New England's premier bluegrass bands.
The highly original “The World Beloved: A Bluegrass Mass” combines lively bluegrass instrumentation with movements from the Traditional Mass, interspersed with simple but meaningful poetry. Southern Rail’s performances have been hailed by the Boston Herald as “first rate bluegrass… precise harmonies, sharp instrumental work… soaring and lush.”
The concert opens with the beautiful flute quintet, “Dawn Carol” by Margaret Lowe, followed by a lovely setting of the traditional Appalachian hymn, “Hark! I Hear the Harps Eternal” and the Bluegrass Mass. In addition, Southern Rail will present two full sets of bluegrass and lead an audience sing-along. The catchy rhythms and upbeat energy of this concert will lift the spirits of all!
Note that musicians and audience members must be fully vaccinated and masked. Seating at the church is limited and will be first come, first served. Doors open at 2:30, with overflow seating and livestreaming provided in the Parish Hall. Please visit our website for tickets and further information.
