Gaudete presents James Whitbourn’s Son of God Mass!
Gaudete presents James Whitbourn’s Son of God Mass for choir, organ, and soprano saxophone. May 19, 2019 at 7 pm, Althea Center for Engaged Spirituality, 1400 Williams St. Free event; donations to support the choir are gratefully accepted.
Our concert version of Whitbourn’s mass setting features the Gaudete choir, organist Kris Wittry, and soprano saxophone soloist Lynn Baker. This contemplative piece is reminiscent of plain chant and shifts through celebratory and meditative elements. With equal emphasis among the instrumentalists and singers, the mass invites the listener into an intimate conversation between the choir and saxophone. As Gaudete’s final offering for the 2018-2019 season, this piece will stay with you throughout the summer until the choir returns in October.
Directed by David Bell, Gaudete presents short, uplifting offerings of sacred music without the church, generally once per month between October and May. Learn more about us at gaudetesingers.org, and stay tuned for our 2019-2020 season announcement! Gaudete is a 501(c)(3), non-profit organization.
