Canticum: Seattle Pro Musica and Choral Arts
Students are free! Please contact admin@seattlepromusica.org to reserve your free student passes.

Critically acclaimed choral ensembles Seattle Pro Musica and Choral Arts join forces for an intimate concert in a magnificent space. The concert venue, St. James Cathedral, is one of Seattle's cultural treasures, with beautiful art and architecture, a warm acoustic that is perfect for choral music, and audience seating in a circle around the central performing area.

Choral Arts's program demonstrates their guiding values as an organization: a commitment to the performance of great unaccompanied choral music and the championing of new work by American composers. The former is represented by three great works by composers of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries: "Ave Maria" by Anton Bruckner, "Richte mich, Gott" by Felix Mendelssohn and Ad majorem Dei gloriam by Benjamin Britten.

The remaining piece on the Choral Arts program highlights the work of a young, exciting choral composer: Jake Runestad. Jake, a resident of Minneapolis, writes music of exceptional lyricism and attention to text, and Choral Arts's concert will begin with a performance of his setting of "I Will Lift Mine Eyes." Choral Arts is honored that Jake will be in attendance at the performance.

Seattle Pro Musica presents a total acoustical immersion experience - 20th and 21st century works written for a reverberant cathedral acoustic, and expressing humanity's connection to the divine and to each other. The featured work is Canticum calamitatis maritimae by Finnish composer Jaakko Mäntyjärvi, written to commemorate a tragic 1994 shipwreck. Also included are the luminous Lucis creator optime by the Latvian composer Vytautis Miškinis, and A drop in the ocean by Estonian composer Eriks Ešenvald.
