About the Event
November is the time for remembering Souls and celebrating Saints. Collaboration seems to be the key word to Season XIII; we will once again collaborate with guest conductor Kathy Romey whose proposal centers around Totentanz of Hugo Distler (1908-1942). First performed in 1934 in Lübeck Germany, this unusual composition for a cappella chorus and speakers was inspired by the well-known St. Mary’s Church Totentanz fresco. Distler was profoundly influenced by the Deutsche Sprüche von Leben und Tod (German Sayings of Life and Death) of Leonhard Lechner (1533-1606).
