O Rising Dawn

12/8/2018 | St. James Cathedral

Music Downtown

St. James Cathedral Resident Ensemble Opus 7 welcomes the holiday season with a stunning program of choral music for Advent and Christmas. Opus 7 has a longstanding tradition of performing settings of the seven “Great O Antiphons”—ancient texts that are sung during the last week of Advent. This year, they will perform antiphon settings by seven different composers, representing the Eastern European countries of Poland, Latvia, and Slovenia, as well as the United States, including two works from Seattle-area composers. Four of the pieces—by Tadja Vulc, Rihards Dubra, Melissa Dunphy, and Kile Smith—will be Northwest premieres.
