This work is scored for a chorus, harp, guitar and marimba. You’ll also hear the Jubilate Ringers, the resident hand bell choir of Faith Lutheran Church. Our performers include the 52-member Chancel Choir of Faith Lutheran Church along with local professional musicians.

This program is one of several events in the 2013-2014 Soli Deo Musica series. Other events include an appearance by Craig Cramer, professor of organ and artist in residence at the University of Notre Dame in Indiana this coming February and a performance of Christ Lag in Todes Banden, BWV 4 by Johann Sebastian Bach in April.
