Choral Evensong with the Cathedral Choir
March 22, 2014
The Religion & the Arts Council is organizing a group to attend Cantare Houston’s March 22 performance of Ein Deutsches Requiem by Johannes Brahms. The Brahms Requiem is a large-scale choral work, composed between 1865 and 1868. Cantare will perform the seven-movement piece accompanied by pianists Jasmine Haten and Shannon Hesse, with solos by soprano Blair Doerge and baritone Brendan Emig.
Cantare Houston was founded nine years ago by artistic director Kevin Riehle. The group seeks to create a community of people changed by the power of great choral music. Its goal is to enrich the cultural landscape of Houston with artistically sensitive and profound interpretations of choral music from every era and a variety of cultures and countries.
Cathedral group tickets for the performance are $25 and may be purchased in the cloister on Sundays through March 16.

On Holy Saturday, in anticipation of Easter Day, we take time out to reflect and remember the women — those who followed Jesus to Jerusalem and stood beside him at the cross, burial and resurrection.
This innovative musical performance and meditation imagines the thoughts and prayers of Mary the Mother, the woman at the well, the woman with nard, Mary of Bethany and Mary Magdalene as they remember their times with Jesus and endure the sorrow of the cross.
Join Brigid’s Place and members of the Houston Chamber Choir for a meditative hour of music with an original script by April DeConick and Betty Adam.
