On Saturday, October 25, 2014, at 11 a.m. at Lincoln Center’s Library for the Performing Arts, there will be a memorial celebration of the late Wagner Music Department chair Ron Cross and his music. Musicians will perform selections from the 1545 Lutheran hymnal, Cantiones Ecclesiasticae — a copy of which was donated to the library by Dr. Cross — which contains both Latin plainsong and German chorales. Also on the program are pieces from the other collections from Cross’s estate donated to the library: pieces by the Italian composer Niccolo da Perugia, music by the Renaissance master Mattheus Pipelare, and compositions by Ron Cross himself, including a popular song he wrote, “It is a Lovely Romance,” published in 1949. The hymnal will be displayed in a glass case at the library on the day of the performance. The concert is free.
