Opus 7 Vocal Ensemble presents "Grant Us Peace"
"Opus 7, one of the most esteemed musical groups anywhere" - Richard Campbell, The Gathering Note, December 2009
2013 - awarded "The American Prize in Choral Performance" - Community Chorus Division
Our March concert, "Grant Us Peace", will feature two settings of the Stabat Mater Dolorosa text, one by baroque composer Antonio Caldara; the second, which was influenced by Caldara's setting, by our resident composer John Muehleisen. We will also perform pieces by Claudio Monteverdi, Peteris Vasks and Stephen Thomas Cavit. The performance will be in the beautiful space of St. James Cathedral, and the chorus will be accompanied by a chamber orchestra and organ.
Opus 7 was formed by Loren Ponten in 1992 and features some of the Northwest's finest choral artists. The group is known for its glorious sound, ardent musicality, and innovative programming of late 19th-, 20th-, and 21st-century choral repertoire.
