'Dona Nobis Pacem: Four Visions,' performed with full orchestra and outstanding soloists, repeats Sounds of Stow’s 2003 response to 9/11 and is equally timely today.  This most heartfelt of texts concludes the traditional mass setting, and the program compares and contrasts those final settings in four great works, composed in different artistic eras and representing very different philosophical approaches to the text.  


Included are excerpts from Bach’s B-minor Mass, Haydn’s Harmoniemesse, Schubert’s Grand Mass In E-flat, and Beethoven’s Missa Solemnis. Soloists Emily Siar, soprano; Deborah Rantz-Moore, mezzo; Jason Wang, tenor; and Mark Cleveland, baritone, are well-known in the Boston area and beyond.


Pianist Sonya Ovrutsky Fensome and the orchestra enhance the choral selections with César Franck’s “Symphonic Variations for Piano and Orchestra,” a seldom performed but beautiful and exciting work composed in 1885. Baritone Mark Cleveland, well-known in Boston for his renditions of Bach, will be joined by Jeff Steward (horn) in the Quoniam from Bach’s B-minor Mass.
