Welcome to the summer 2015 concert of the Los Angeles Chamber Choir.
LA Chamber Choir joyously celebrates its 10th anniversary with performance of Joseph Haydn’s Missa in tempore belli, and Vaughn Williams’ Dona nobis pacem.
The first of the three great composers of Classical era, Haydn composed ‘Mass in Time of War’ in 1796 during the great turmoil in Europe following the French Revolution. Haydn longed for the end of the war between Austria and France as Austrian army suffered repeated defeats by Napoleon’s army.
Vaughn Williams’ Dona nobis pacem debuted in 1936, at a time when England was being drawn into second European conflict. This piece is his plea for peace, and the texts set the description of the horrors of war, the sadness and futility of loss and need for peace.
