Vox Ama Deus - Mozart's Requiem & Verdi's Stabat Mater

April 18, 2003
Admission is FREE- Suggested Donation: $10 per adult
8:00 p.m.
On this most solemn day—reverent, uplifting and thrilling music performed in a sacred space. The Requiem was commissioned by a Viennese aristocrat for his wife’s memorial service. Due to Mozart’s untimely death at age 35, while composing it, the Requiem became his own. Intensely dramatic and powerful, this work is one of the pillars of western music.
Verdi, one of the best-known “revolutionary composers” (Gartbaldi’s Italian Revolution), makes his long overdue dramatic debut in our programming with his exquisite Stabat Mater—so befitting the day. Two sacred motets, Mozart’s Ave Verum and Verdi’s Ave Maria, also will be performed.
