Earth Day Celebration: A Special Performance

Monday, April 22 @ 7:30 pm 9:00 pm

A very special presentation of the Mass for All Creatures by London composer Oliver Whitehead. The performance will be held in the heart of Wortley Village at Saint James Westminster, 115 Askin Street.

The piece was originally commissioned in 1997 by St. Paul’s Cathedral for a new church service celebrating the Feast of St. Francis. This piece explores the diversity of the natural world and our relationship to it. The music is eclectic and contemporary with influences of folk and art music from
across the globe. The texts are drawn from various sources such as the writings of the medieval visionaries St. Francis of Assisi and Meister Eckhart, 18th-century romantic poet William Blake and the Bible.

London Pro Musica will combine with the choir of St. James Westminster to present this exciting choral work. The choirs will be supported by members of The Antler River Project which includes the composer Oliver Whitehead and St. James music director Stephen Holowitz. The concert will be
conducted by Paul Grambo.

“This will be a very moving, joyful and thought-provoking evening of music, movement and readings, giving us an opportunity to consider the relationship between humans and animals and the natural world.” – Stephen Holowitz

Admission by donation. A minimum donation of $20 is suggested or an amount that is within your means.
