Artists’ Vocal Ensemble begins its eighth season with a concert at 7:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 24, in collaboration with the Davis Children’s Chorale, directed by Rachel Kessler.

The concert — at Davis Community Church, 412 C St. — will feature the U.S. premiere of a recently discovered Spanish Renaissance Mass by Alonso Lobo, as well as music by Praetorius, Guerrero, Palestrina, Josquin, Hugo Distler and Peter Hallock.

In the “Wise and Foolish Virgins” — the title is a reference to a parable from the Gospels — AVE explores the fascination that Renaissance Europe held with the subject of the “Second Coming.”

The Catholic region of Europe, especially Spain, treated this parable as a parallel to love of the Virgin Mary. But in the Protestant northern region of Europe, the theme focused on the concept of watching, being ready for the second coming.

From “watching” came all of the “Watchman” literature from “Wachet auf” (in the Ecclesiastical world) to “Tristan and Isolde” (in the secular world) — in both cases, it’s about a watching awakening the community before the dawn.

Five cellos will join the men of AVE for a piece by Seattle composer Peter Hallock, titled “The Dawning.” And San Francisco composer Mark Winges is represented in a piece titled “The Midnight Cry.”

AVE is a professional choral group directed by critically acclaimed early music specialist Jonathan Dimmock.

The Davis Children’s Chorale was organized in 1995 to perform the children’s chorus in the St. Matthew’s Passion for the Greater Sacramento Area Bach Festival. The chorale has since appeared with the Davis Chorale and the River City Chorus in a performance of the West Coast premier of Andrew Charters “Te Deum” with the composer conducting.

The chorale also has participated in several Heritage Festivals, in Chicago, New York, San Francisco, Washington, D.C., and Los Angeles. Its international tours include England, Czech Republic and Italy.

The Davis Children’s Chorale is an auditioned choir open to children from Davis and the surrounding areas, ages 8 through 14. Kessler is the founder and artistic director of the group.

Tickets are $15 in advance, available at www.brownpapertickets.com, or $20 for adults and $15 for students at the door.
