Music of the Final Judgment & Rejoicing in the Torah with San Francisco Renaissance Voices and guest artist Diana Rowan, Celtic harp
San Francisco Renaissance Voices annual All Souls/All Saints program takes a twist this year with this exciting season opening concert with guest artist Diana Rowan, Celtic harp.  The celebrations of the Jewish New Year concludes each fall with the final days of Sukkot:  the festivals of Hoshana Rabbahthe final day of the season of  repentance, celebrated with penitential prayers, processionals with willow branches and prayers for rainand Simchat Torah, an exuberant celebration that includes dancing with the Torah scrolls and festive reading of the sacred scriptures. In the Renaissance and Baroque periods, these festivals were celebrated in some European communities with joyous musical celebrations, often collaborations between Jewish and Christian composers.  This concert set features rarely-heard cantatas and motets for the season, including Carlo Grossi's 1681 Cantata Ebraica (Venice), Avraham Caceres' L'Eil Eilim (Amsterdam), and selections from the dramatic 1733 Italian cantata Dio, Clemenza e Rigore (Casale Monferrato), as well as medieval Jewish chant and motets for the holy days by Salamone Rossi and Cristiano Lidarti.  This concert also features the music of the Psalms and Songs of Solomon by Italian Renaissance masters as well as by our very own Music Director and noted composer Todd Jolly.

Pre-concert talk by Rabbi Reuben Zellman 45 minutes before each performance.
