Tickets: $15/adults; $10 seniors/students
This spiritually-uplifting extended work, neither expressly sacred nor secular, uses ancient texts even though the titles of the movements are in English: I. The Spheres (Kyrie); II. Sunrise (Gloria); III. The City (Credo); IV. Identity & The Ground (Sanctus). The four movements develop from a sense of the cosmos to an affirmation of the earth, from the echo of The Spheres in the first movement to the final reassuring themes of Identity & The Ground.
Ola Gjeilo is one of the Cheyenne Chamber Singers favorite composers . . and Sunrise Mass will show off the powerful voices of the Singers, accompanied by local and regional instrumentalists.
