Event

Crossing the Bar: A Concert of Remembrance and Hope
Featuring "Requiem" by Gabriel Fauré and "Five Mystical Songs" by Ralph Vaughan Williams

Commemorating the Centenary of the First World War Armistice - 11.11.18

November 10, 2018 at 7:30 pm and November 11, 2018 at 4:00 pm

ABOUT THE CONCERT

This concert marks the centenary of the armistice of the First World War.  The concert is built on major pieces by French and English composers: Gabriel Fauré (1845-1924) and Ralph Vaughan Williams (1872-1958) who both lived through The Great War. Rather than expressing fear of death, Faurés' "Requiem" expresses his view of death as, in his words, a happy deliverance, an aspiration towards happiness above. Vaughan William's "Five Mystical Songs" puts to music Easter season poems by George Herbert (1593-1633) that celebrate the Resurrection and end with a triumphant antiphon of praise, Let all the world in every corner sing: my God and King! The theme of this concert is based on the poem "Crossing the Bar" by Alfred Lord Tennyson (1809-92). While an elegy, it has a tone not of sorrow but one embracing death as an inevitable part of life's journey -not as an end, but as a new beginning.  

Join us for this special concert with guest conductor Dr. David Mennicke, organist Kraig Windschitl and harpist Rachel Brandwein, as we remember one armistice and hope for more to come.
