The Seattle Choral Company (A Saint Mark’s Cathedral Artist-in-residence choir) presents their mid-season concert featuring three works on a theme of darkness giving way to light. Widely recognized by musicians worldwide, John Rutter is beloved for his lush melodies and orchestrations. Rutter’s Requiem is unmistakably optimistic in its message of hope and solace, expressed through uplifting musical themes and beautiful texts in both Latin and English. Bob Chilcott’s Canticles of Light exudes comfort, and the texts, sung at the service of Compline in the evening and Matins in the morning, ask for God’s light to protect us through the night and to allay our fears. In 2013 Latvian composer Pēteris Vasks set Mother Teresa’s universal prayer of peace to music, creating a hauntingly beautiful atmosphere that has become a staple for choirs around the world.
