Opus 7, directed by Loren W. Pontén, presents a powerful collection of choral music for the Lenten season expressing mercy and hope. Contemplate the solemnity of the season at Seattle's most iconic sacred space with lush romantic works by Mendelssohn, Rheinberger, Georg Schumann, Pizzetti, Szymanowski and Villette; the crystalline, plaintive melodies of Henry Purcell; and American composers William Albright, Gwyneth Walker, and Seattles Peter Hallock. The central work is Krzysztof Pendereckis setting of the traditional Agnus Dei.
