The Davis Community Chorale will perform an interfaith Vespers service at 5 p.m. Sunday at Davis Community Church, 412 C St. downtown.

The Vespers service will include sacred music from the Renaissance to the present, including two choruses from Felix Mendelssohn’s oratorio “Elijah” — “He watching over Israel” and “Lift thine eyes” — featuring Elisabeth Lowry on flute.

All this, as well as solos and congregational singing, are part of the 45-minute service conducted by Alison Skinner.

According to Skinner, “This Vespers concert will feature new and old choruses, ensembles and congregational hymns celebrating music of all faiths. We welcome the audience to take these moments away from everyday chaos and use the time for personal reflection.

“There will be a few familiar hymns for folks that would like to sing along.”

Among the selections will be “Locus Iste” by Anton Bruckner; a hymn setting of “Thy Mercy and Thy Truth, O Lord” by Thomas Tallis; a hymn setting of “A Mighty Fortress Is Our God” by Martin Luther; the movement “Quia Respexit” from J.S. Bach’s setting of “Magnificat,” featuring soprano Mary Lowry; a setting of the “Ave Maria” by Luigi Cherubini, with soprano Sharon Burow; the Hebrew melody “O God of Earth and Space;” the American spiritual “I’m Goin’ to Sing;” and other short works.

The concert is free and open to the public; donations are welcomed at the door.

For more information, call (530) 574-8419.
