Faith. Thanksgiving.
Refuge. Transcendence.

Two works for double choir—Paul Fowler’s wordless, hypnotic Calling and Frank Martin’s masterful setting of the Latin Mass—bookend an evening of music exploring the world of the spirit from many perspectives:

• A poignant setting of the words of St. Teresa of Avila by Edie Hill.
• Leading Estonian composer Galina Grigorjeva’s meditation on the soul’s passage from life into afterlife.
• Pulitzer Prize winner Caroline Shaw’s setting of Psalm 84, inspired by the Syrian refugee crisis.
• And Dale Trumbore’s hymn of gratitude for the fruits of the earth.

Tickets go on sale September 7th!
