Yo Quiero Pachelbel

Raymond Dabb Yelland, Glimpse of Monterey Bay (1879)

From September through June, Sacred Music in a Sacred Space offers beautiful services and concerts in the glorious setting of the Gothic sanctuary at Christ and St. Luke’s Episcopal Church.




Local musicians have come to know Christ and St. Luke’s as their musical home. Click here for a complete schedule of Sacred Music in a Sacred Space for 2019-2020.

In conjunction with the Norfolk Chamber Consort, now in its 51st season, Invencia Piano Duo‘s Andrey Kasparov and Oksana Lutsyshyn will appear on a program that features a rich menu of music from the pens of Johann and his two sons, Wilhelm Hieronymus and Charles Theodore Pachelbel. The pupil master of Johann Christoph Bach, elder brother of Johann Sebastian, Johann Pachelbel was just one of many Pachelbels within the borders of Bavaria. However, Johann was among the last great composers of the Nuremberg tradition, and the last important composer from southern Germany.ncconsortlogo

Pachelbel’s musical influence was limited largely to his students, including Johann Christoph Bach, Johann Heinrich Buttstett, Andreas Nicolaus Vetter, and two of Pachelbel’s sons, Wilhelm Hieronymus and Charles Theodore. The latter of the two went on to become one of the first European composers to emigrate to the American colonies, which would lead to the senior Pachelbel’s indirect influence over American sacred music of the era.

The program will begin at 7:30PM, with a pre-concert discussion by Dr. Kasparov from 7:15PM.

A catered reception follows the performance, with food provided by friends of the Norfolk Chamber Consort.

Tickets at the door $25.00, Students $10.00.
