Music composed in times of oppression and persecution often possesses a singular resilience that inspires and gives witness to the courageous dimension of the human spirit. In this concert The Seraphim Singers present choral and instrumental works composed under conditions of religious persecution in Renaissance England, slavery in 18th and 19th century America, the Holocaust during World War II, and totalitarianism in the Soviet era. Featuring:
Poulenc: Un soir de neige
Tippett: Selections from A Child of Our TIme
Messiaen: Selections from Quatuor pour la fin du temps and choral works by Shostakovich, Penderecki, Stanhope, Zuckerman, Goudimel, Sweelinck, and Tallis
