    La Crosse Chamber Chorale – A Place of Praise @ Saint Rose Convent, Mary of the Angels Chapel
    Apr 6 @ 7:30 pm

    “Locus Iste” by Anton Bruckner commemorates the dedication of a church —“this priceless, holy place.” We sing
    it with gratitude to the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration for hosting this concert of sacred music. Our
    April concerts will present Benjamin Britten’s cantata “Rejoice in the Lamb,” based upon words of the brilliant,
    eccentric English poet Christopher Smart, and featuring organist Dean Whiteway. We’ll sing two more pieces
    from Paul’s bucket list: the joyful, rhythmically intense setting of Psalm 98 by Hugo Distler, “Sing a New Song to
    the Lord” and Estonian composer Arvo Pärt’s haunting musical retelling of Jesus’s parable of “The Woman with
    the Alabaster Box.”
