Calvary Masterworks Chorus presents John Rutter’s Requiem

John Rutter’s “Requiem” 

The 2018 Calvary Masterworks Chorus invites you to enjoy an evening of classical & hymn music as they present John Rutter’s “Requiem.”

Our Masterworks Concert will open with a series of beloved hymns by Charles Wesley, John Newton, and Isaac Watts that have been rethought by British Composer and jazz pianist, Christopher Norton. These beautiful, creative, and moving arrangements accompanied by a pipe organ give a new sense of beauty to the 18th-century texts. John Rutter’s “Requiem” was completed in 1985 and is a choral masterpiece. His setting of this work is beautiful, with melodies that illustrate the depth of the text. The text is a mixture of Latin and English and includes a movement that features his famous setting of Psalm 23.

Calvary University Introduces “lux voces”

Calvary University Introduces “lux voces”

Calvary University introduces their new traveling music group lux voces.  The group consists of Calvary students and alumni. 

This new group is made up of young, talented musicians, praising God through their music using vocals, guitars, drums and piano in their performances.  Our goal is to serve Christian schools and churches by sharing the good news of Jesus Christ through music and testimonies.

The group will be available for Sunday morning church services and Christian school chapels as a way to introduce or familiarize Calvary University to families around the metro area with an interest in a local university.

The group debuted at the President’s Dinner in September to a great response.  Would you like to have lux voces visit your church or school?  They are now scheduling for the 2018-2019 season.  The group has their own equipment, sound technician, and sponsors for each performance.
