Ralph Vaughan Williams’ masterful cantata for soloists, choir, and orchestra, is one of the most important anti-war compositions of the 20th century. Written between World War I and II, Dona nobis pacem (Grant us peace) is one of Vaughan Williams’ most significant works. It is an impassioned plea for peace that blends Biblical text with the emotionally-charged anti-war poetry of Walt Whitman to create a searing indictment of the tragedy of war.

Saint-Saens Organ Symphony; Vivaldi Gloria; OSSCS Composer Competition Winner
Sunday, MayMay 21, 3:00pm at First Free Methodist Church, Seattle, WA
Tickets: $25 adult, $20 senior, $10 student

Vivaldi’s joyful Gloria — today his best-loved choral work — languished in oblivion for two centuries, until a 1939 performance reintroduced it to the modern world. Of his “Organ” Symphony, Saint-Saëns declared: “I gave everything to it I was able to give. What I have here accomplished, I will never achieve again.” Tom Service calls it “a magnificent and fantastical symphonic machine that’s an apotheosis of the orchestral technology of the late 19th century … the definitive ‘steampunk’ symphony.

Sunday, MayMay 21, 4:00pm at Temple Beth Am, Seattle, WA

Seattle Jewish Chorale’s Spring concert represents perhaps the greatest variety of choral repertoire ever performed by the choir. The music ranges from songs written in the late Renaissance, such as Salamone Rossi’s “Correte Amanti” to music written this very year, such as Jacob Finkle’s “Az Yashir Moshe” without skipping any musical time period in between. Indeed, our concert includes such disparate musical styles as Renaissance madrigals, Baroque oratorio choruses, Romantic anthems, modern works, and even Jazz pieces. Similarly, our singers will be performing in five distinct languages, these being Hebrew, English, Yiddish, Italian, and Ladino. More musically complex works such as Jane Roman Pitt’s “Kumi Lach,” George Frideric Handel’s “He is My God,” and Isadore Freed’s “A Woman of Valor” serve to show the impressive musical growth the Chorale has recently accomplished.
