Early Music Delight with Forgotten Clefs Renaissance Ensemble
Music for a Cathedral Space
The E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Series
The Cathedral of the Sacred Heart | Richmond, VA
Fr. Anthony Marques, Rector | Daniel Sañez, Artistic Director
Historically on this day and at this very hour, we would have hosted our annual Christmas Concert & Luncheon, featuring a performance by the wonderful Forgotten Clefs, featuring Sarah & Kelsey Schilling and their friends, courtesy of the generosity of the E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Foundation. We have every intention of hosting this concert next year.
We greatly miss you, our concertgoers and supporters, and hope that the message below from Forgotten Clefs and a short clip of Christmas cheer brightens your Advent season.
We look forward being together again,
immersed in the sumptuous sounds of sacred music in person at this Cathedral.
Wishing you an Advent filled with blessings and hope,
Your Friends at the Cathedral of the Sacred Heart
