All Saints Day Performance. Again this fall the St. Saviour’s Choir will be giving a special performance in honor of All Saints Day on November 1st at 3 pm.  The major work for the program is Schubert’s Mass in G Major, which will be accompanied by a string ensemble and organ.  This is one of Schubert’s vocal gems, with beautiful melodies and harmony.  This concert offers all of us a meaningful opportunity to remember our loved ones who have gone before us. We hope you will plan to attend this musical afternoon and invite a friend or neighbor to come with you.
