Soli Deo Gloria, Allen H Simon, conductor, presents Peace and War.
Swords into plowshares, spears into pruning hooks. Randall Thompson's The Peaceable Kingdom, inspired by a painting by Edward Hicks, explores Biblical themes of judgment and explores the harmony of peace within God's kingdom. Haydn'sMass in Time of War appropriates the drums of war into one of his best settings of the timeless text of the Latin Mass. Both breathtaking masterpieces combined in one awe-inspiring concert.
