Chris Fritz – Grice

Gold Velvet Sofa


On August 15 at 8 pm, Festina returns to celebrate the feast of St. Mary the Virgin — and its one-year anniversary of residency at St John’s, Gloucester — with an eclectic survey of Marian music. In a traditional Rite I Mass at the high altar with incense, we will feature the mystical Missa de Beata Virgine by Spanish priest-composer Francisco Guerrero, ‘Gaude Maria Virgo’ by his compatriot Victoria, the sounds of the Romantic Bavaria in ‘Ave Regina caelorum’ by Josef Rheinberger, and the exciting ‘Assumpta est Maria’ by late Renaissance England’s Peter Philips. Psalm 45 in Anglican chant by Archer and Ouseley and hymns ‘Immaculate Mary’ and ‘Sing we of the Blessed Mother’ round out the liturgy. If you’re driving, set your GPS to our parking lot at 33 Washington St, Gloucester, MA 01930. Everyone is welcome!



Willie Alexander’s Persistence of Memory Orchestra
Friday, August 16th, 2019, 6:00pm, with food service by Willow Rest
From the Lost, a 60′s garage-band that made a couple of records for Capitol, to the psychedelic late-60′s Bagatelle, to a brief stint in the post-Lou Reed Velvet Underground, the Boom Boom Band in the punk 70′s, which recorded for MCA, to an introspective take on the 80′s recording for the French label New Rose, and renewed band energy in the 90′s with the Persistence of Memory Orchestra, Willie has maintained a consistently high level
