Still playing catch-up with reporting recent events. It was two weeks ago that Northern New Jersey Chapter of Rose Croix met and hosted a concert by the Men's Chorus of the Presbyterian Church in Morristown. That's our Most Wise Master wearing the red bowtie.
Actually the meeting took place in Morristown too, while our building recovers from the recent flooding.
The choir was excellent. Dividing the concert into two sets, the singers first, and not surprisingly, performed a number of religious pieces before moving into the Masonic music, featuring works by Mozart, Sibelius, and others, including Ignatz Joseph Pleyel, who composed music you may recognize from the Master Mason Degree. The choir concluded the performance with more recent works, jazz standards and show tunes among them.
