Description

On March 19, the Choral Society will perform a collection of short modern and contemporary works on war and peace by women composers, many Canadian, including Eleanor Daley and Joni Mitchell. The concert centrepiece will be Latvian composer Lucija Garuta’s cantata God, Thy Earth Is Aflame. The work was first performed in Latvia in 1944 during the final phases of the Second World War. It evinces human desperation in the face of armed conflict, as well as hope for peace.
