From page A11 | May 21, 2013 |

The Davis Chorale, under the direction of Alison Skinner and accompanied on the piano by Ellen Deffner, will perform an Interfaith Vespers Service of choral music and congregational hymns, celebrating sacred music of different styles from various countries in different languages.

Vespers is at 5 p.m. Sunday, June 2, at Davis Community Church, 412 C St. downtown.

Austrian Joseph Haydn’s “Te Deum” will be the longest work in the concert. Shorter works will represent the United States with the somber “Funeral Anthem” by William Billings, dubbed America’s father of choral music, and the lively spiritual “Ride on King Jesus.”

“Der Jaeger” from Johannes Brahms’ Marienlieder represents the Romantic German element. The choir will sing Irish-born Charles Villiers Stanford’s “Motet Justorum animae,” written in the traditional Anglican style.

A small ensemble and a husband-and-wife duo will bring France and England into the mix with Gabriel Faure’s “Maria,” “Mater Gratiae” and Henry Purcell’s “Sound the Trumpet.”

Admission is free, and all are welcome to attend. A free-will donation will be accepted with gratitude.
