Sacred Sound to be screened at Holy Cross

Published 3:19 pm Thursday, January 25, 2018

Sacred Sound, a documentary film by Robin Arcus, will be shown on Sunday, Feb. 4 at 5 p.m. at the Episcopal Church of the Holy Cross, Tryon. Admission is free, and the public is invited to attend. Holy Cross is located at 150 Melrose Avenue, Tryon.

Sacred Sound is a documentary film of one summer week when 50 American girls learn to sing extraordinary music in the manner of the great cathedral choirs. The film, shot primarily at Saint Mary’s School (Raleigh, N.C.) and Duke University Chapel (Durham, N.C.), shows the teamwork required to make great choral music as the choir prepares for two Sunday worship services.

Relish beauty in sight and sound of remarkable young people who willingly rise at dawn to sit on hard pews for the sake of offering themselves to God through music. These young people take to heart the words of the liturgy as the means by which humans relate to heaven, and bring music to life through the very breath of their beings.
