Ever Ancient, Ever New: A Festival of St James Choirs
Celebrating 25 Years of Image Journal
Saturday, November 8, 2014 - 7:30 pm
St James Cathedral - 9th and Marion, Seattle
This evening of ancient and modern choral works by Bach, Britten, St. Hildegard of Bingen, Pärt, Stravinsky, and others—as well as three commissioned world premieres—will celebrate the 25th anniversary of Image, one of Seattle’s hidden treasures, a literary quarterly that celebrates the best contemporary writing and art that engage with faith. Poetry from the pages of Image by writers such as Denise Levertov, Kathleen Norris, and Franz Wright will be interspersed with performances by the Medieval Women’s Choir, Opus 7 Vocal Ensemble, Seattle Pro Musica, and the Women of St James Schola. This event will demonstrate one of Image’s founding tenets: that beauty’s power to draw us closer to the divine—through music, poetry, and all the arts—is not a thing of the past, but is continually being renewed in our own time.
