Mass for the Endangered – Sarah Kirkland Snider
Psalm 148 – Gustav Holst
Chichester Psalms –Leonard Bernstein
With emotional prayers, mesmerizing harmonies, and words of hope, all three composers set religious texts to convey their message and inspire the listener to action. Sarah Kirkland Snider’s glorious and riveting Mass for the Endangered opens the program, inspired by the traditional Catholic Mass but focusing on our delicate relationships to the wildlife of our planet. The second half opens with Holst’s crystalline Psalm 148 and leads into Bernstein’s spirited and dynamic Chichester Psalms. Experience the full sounds of Pacific Chorale and Pacific Symphony in the world-class Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall.
