Silent Night - Bastyr, 7:30pm

2018 marks the 100 th anniversary of the end of WWI, the “war to end all wars.” Our concert is inspired by the
Christmas truce in 1914 during which roughly 100,000 English, French, and German troops ceased hostilities to
offer holiday greetings, mingle, and even exchange gifts. We celebrate this spirit of peace with carols and
holiday music from England, France, and Germany.

December 2018 also marks the 200 th anniversary of the creation and premiere of the beloved carol “Silent
Night,” written during an era when all of Europe suffered from political upheaval, war, and economic hardship.
In 1818, Joseph Mohr brought his original text to organist Franz Xaver Gruber and asked for a simple melody
with guitar accompaniment for a Christmas Eve service—the result has since become a timeless expression of
light, hope, and solace.

Our December concerts often sell out in advance and elicit glowing reviews: “Seattle Pro Musica’s annual
Christmas concert is a gourmet event for music lovers.” - Pippa Kiraly, Sunbreak

Dona nobis pacem - May 19

spm-2016-squarebox-dona-nobis-pacem-may-19.jpg

Written between World War I and II, Dona nobis pacem (Grant us peace) is one of Ralph Vaughan Williams’ most significant works. It is an impassioned plea for peace that blends Biblical text with the emotionally-charged anti-war poetry of Walt Whitman to create a searing indictment of the tragedy of war.
