First United Methodist Church
1376 Olive Street, Eugene, OR
The penitential season of Lent has inspired composers to create some of their most profound and expressive music. Vox Resonat, directed by Eric Mentzel, provides Renaissance and medieval music for a lenten Evensong followed by a short concert of a cappella works. Service music will be by Byrd, Scarlatti and Ayleward; the concert will feature works by Gesualdo, Gombert, Richafort, Tallis, and Victoria.
