Westminster Williamson Voices

By Concerts at the Cathedral Basilica (other events)

Saturday, November 5 2016 7:30 PM 9:30 PM EDT

The Westminster Williamson Voices continue a close relationship with Concerts at the Cathedral Basilica as they return with a stunning work by preeminent Estonian composer Arvo Pärt. The composer was captivated and inspired by the text of an early Orthodox hymn, the Canon of Repentance to Our Lord Jesus Christ, and the creative process for this evening-length work spanned two years of the composer’s life. According to Pärt, “The ‘time we spent together’ was extremely enriching. That may explain why this music means so much to me.” The evening offers an immersive exploration of the singular voice of this important contemporary choral composer, led by one of the most prominent and published authorities in the current choral field, Dr. James Jordan.
