  •     The Choral Society of the Hamptons will present “In Terra Pax” on Dec. 8. The program is named for Gerald Finzi’s piece of the same title, which mixes the verse of Robert Bridges, a British poet who died in 1930, with the Gospel of Luke. In passages the voices mimic the sound of church bells. Other works include Ralph Vaughan Williams’s “Fantasia on Christmas Carols” and compositions by Cecilia McDowall and Peter Warlock.

  • Return of the Lit Lunch
        Chris Knopf and Christina Haag will pull up chairs and clink silverware at this year’s benefit authors lunch at the American Hotel in Sag Harbor on Dec. 8. The noon to 2:30 p.m. meal comes courtesy of the Friends of the John Jermain Memorial Library.

        That library, of course, isn’t alone in undergoing a renovation and expansion, it’s just that in this case it’s been nigh unto interminable, perhaps making a celebratory lunch all the more so.

  • Amagansett

    A black Apple iPad in a gray case was reported stolen from a house on Meeting House Lane late last month. Margaret Eichhorn told police that she had brought in four men to remove unwanted furniture, including a couch in the living room. After the men left, she realized that the iPad, which she said had been next to the couch, was gone. Police said they interviewed the workers, from 1-800-GOT-JUNK, and all four denied seeing or taking the tablet, valued at $799.
