End of time music to be played

You may hear one of the most powerful pieces of music of the 20th century, The Quartet for the End of Time by Olivier Messiaen, at 3 p.m. Sunday, March 30 at Mount Vernon Music Hall.

Written when Messiaen and three other musicians were held in a German prison camp in the early 1940s, the piece was inspired by verses in the biblical book of Revelation. See the March 20 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald for more information.
