Dubois wrote many sacred works, but he also aspired to compose for the opera stage. Though the operatic aspirations did not take off, his dramatic flair is evident in the musical writing for his setting of "The Seven Last Words." The rich harmonies, fiery instrumental writing and emotional pathos all add to the popularity of this Lenten choral favorite.
This special concert is free and the public is cordially invited to attend.
Trinity Church is located at 7500 Piney Branch Rd, NW, Washington, D.C., 20012
