Peace is often hard-won, and Cantabile Choir’s last concert of 2023 presents both the struggle and the ultimate clarity and serenity of the quest for reconciliation. From Arvo Pärt’s hauntingly beautiful setting of the ancient Knights Templar chant Da Pacem Domine, through to the quiet and not-so-quiet defiance of Negro spirituals, from the apocalyptic darkness of Samuel Barber’s Twelfth Night to the loving acceptance of Dan Forrest’s Good Night, Dear Heart.
Visions of Peace draws on music from the 15th to the 21st centuries to present a truthful look at the road to peace. Come celebrate, meditate, and marvel with Cantabile Choir in the peaceful surrounds of Christ Church, Brunswick.
