Rethinking Schubert @ Church of the Heavenly Rest
Feb 18 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm

February 18 – New York Classical Players: Rethinking Schubert, 3pm.

Franz Schubert’s enduring legacy as one of the most prolific and creative composers is the source of inspiration for New York Classical Player’s original new program, “Rethinking Schubert.”  Three works transform, magnify, and illuminate the artistry of Schubert through works for string orchestra. Rondo Brillant, originally scored for violin and piano and Schubert’s Death and the Maiden(String Quartet No. 14 in D minor), magnificently arranged by Gustav Mahler, are performed alongside the United State premiere of Dobrinka Tabakova’s 2013 Fantasy Homage to Schubert. Click here for free tickets, click here for more information.

Night Prayer Service
Church of the Heavenly Rest invites you to a service of quiet music and contemplation, joining hearts and voices in  the centuries-old tradition of Night Prayer. Let the softness of candlelight and the beauty of singing envelop you each Sunday evening from 7:00pm-7:30pm in the Chapel of the Beloved Disciple. Night Prayer, the last office of the day for monastic communities, is the perfect way to both end the day and begin the week nourished and refreshed.
Night Prayer begins on Sunday, December 1.

Need a Prayer

PSALM 51
Open my lips, O Lord,
and my mouth shall proclaim your praise.

Create in me a clean heart, O God,
and renew a right spirit within me.

Cast me not away from your presence
and take not your holy Spirit from me.

Give me the joy of your saving help again
and sustain me with your bountiful Spirit.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit:
as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen.
