The Sacred Arts Series continues on Nov. 24 with Choral Evensong sung by the St. Alban’s Choir celebrating the Feast of Christ the King. Known as the jewel of Anglican worship, this service will feature a repertoire by Richard Ayleward, Herbert Brewer, and Ralph Vaughan Williams.
Following Evensong, Eric Smith will offer a concert on the baroque cello and viola da gamba. Praised by critics for his “flawless lightness and grace,” he has been called “the very model of an elegant cellist” (Dallas Morning News), and his performances have been described as “nuanced, thoughtful, and technically sound” (Theater Jones). In addition to serving as artistic director of the American Baroque Opera Co., Eric has collaborated, among many others, with ensembles including the Dallas Bach Society, Orchestra of New Spain, Dallas Chamber Players, Bach Society of Houston, New York’s Concert Royal, and La Follia Austin.
