From Light to Light

Midwinter Concert

Sunday, March 1, 2020 | 3:00 PM | St. Bartholomew Catholic Church | Wayzata, MN | Buy tickets

You'll encounter the majesty of God's creation and precious seasons of life from first light to sunset. The Word Was God by Rosephanye Powell captures the moment of creation as McDermid’s From Light to Light immerses us in earth, fire, water and Ešenvalds wonders at the Stars. We yearn for spring as “the narrow bud opens her beauties to the sun” in Dove’s Passing of the Year with poetry by Blake, Dickinson, and Tennyson. Encounter “the sea, sunset and darkening blue” in Clausen's Tonight Eternity Alone as MacMillan invokes a Radiant Dawn to shine on those in darkness. Music by Hagenberg and Chilcott and Elder’s Elegy reassure us that “as we go, this we know, God is nigh.”

All That Hath Life and Breath [Cancelled]

As spring blossoms, our spirits soar to nostalgic Scandinavian music by Grieg and Stenhammar, deeply faithful Spiritual Songs by Jennings, and a heartfelt tribute to René Clausen including All That Hath Life and Breath, Song at Dusk, and Clausen's dramatic five part Mass.
