Fauré's Requiem to Be Performed Sunday, November 19, at The Reformed Church of Bronxville PDF Print Email


By Dr. Sándor Szabó, Minister of Music and Organist, The Reformed Church of Bronxville 

Nov. 8, 2017:  The Reformed Church of Bronxville will present a concert of beautiful and sublime works on Sunday, November 19, at 3:00 pm, featuring the chancel choir, which will be joined by guest choristers from surrounding communities.

Under the leadership of Dr. Sándor Szabó, minister of music, the choir will perform Fauré’s Requiem, his best-known masterwork, which stands as one of Fauré's greatest achievements and is one of the finest works in all of French music.

Of the many settings by various composers of the Requiem, this is probably the most widely loved. In comparison with the large-scale masterpieces of Verdi, Brahms, and Berlioz, Fauré’s setting seems gentle and unassuming, yet it is this very quality of understatement that contributes so eloquently to the work’s universal appeal. It is impossible not to be moved by the ethereal beauty of this humble masterpiece.

Also on the program will be G. F. Handel’s charming harp concerto performed by renowned harpist Diane Michaels.

The concert is free and a reception will follow. The concert will take place in the main sanctuary of the church.

Blessing of Animals to Be Held at The Reformed Church of Bronxville Sunday, October 8 PDF Print Email


By Staff, The Reformed Church of Bronxville

Oct. 4, 2017:  The Reformed Church of Bronxville will be holding its annual Blessing of the Animals on Sunday, October 8, from noon to 1:00 pm in the grassy cloister area on Pondfield Road.

The Blessing of The Animals gives us an opportunity to acknowledge the life and contributions of St. Francis of Assisi--his service to the poor, his tender care of all creation, and his respect for nature. 

This gathering will also allow us to honor and celebrate all of God's creatures and the special relationship we have with them.

We encourage you to bring your special animal companion and have them blessed by our clergy. 

We ask, for everyone's safety, that dogs be on leashes and cats in carriers. 

If your companion does not travel well or is deceased, you can bring his or her photo to be blessed.
