Peace - Music of Three Faiths
March 12 and 13, 2016 - 8pm
Peace explores the deep connections between three Abrahamic faiths: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Anchoring the program are Gloria (everywhere) by Turkish-American composer Kamran Ince with words by the 13th-century Sufi poet Rumi, and I sing of love by Bernard Hughes who weaves together texts from Jewish, Christian, and Muslim traditions. The concert also features uplifting works by Renaissance Jewish composer Salamone Rossi and contemporary Latvian composer Ēriks Ešenvalds, along with Islamic songs and interfaith chants.
