Haydn’s Missa in Angustiis (Mass for Troubled Times) was written in 1798, a time of great instability and turbulence in Europe. From the gripping and intense Kyrie, to the life affirming Dona Nobis Pacem, this work transcends its time and offers hope to us in our own time. Ola Gjeilo’s Song of the Universal is a setting of verses from Whitman’s great work. According to the composer, “I love the unabashed optimism, exuberance and his unwavering confidence in our deeper humanity.” Arvo Pärt’s Cantus in Memoriam Benjamin Britten and John Tavener’s The Lamb complete this evening of powerful music. The concert will be conducted by Jason C. Tramm, hailed as a “conductor to watch” by Symphony Magazine.
