Join us for our spring concert featuring “Gardens”,  a contemporary oratorio by Canadian composer David Squires. This nine-movement work for soprano, choir and chamber orchestra takes you on a profound spiritual journey that starts from the first garden in the book of Genesis to the ultimate and longed-for garden described at the end of Revelation.

Each movement brings together divergent biblical passages illustrating the journey from the life, glory and peace of the created order, through the lament of the exiled wanderers, to the Good Shepherd who is our peace, and His suffering, and to our final promised dwelling place in the Garden of Joy yet to come.

Other sacred choral works, sung in English and Chinese include:

Franz Josef Haydn – “The Heavens are Telling
Mark Hayes – “Praise to the Lord, the Almighty
Mary McDonald – “Great is Thy Faithfulness
Frank Huang – “Psalms 23” 耶和華是我牧者
Ralph Vaughan Williams – “Let All The World in Every Corner Sing
