Under the direction of James Kallembach, the University of Chicago Motet Choir and Rockefeller Chapel Choir gave a rich and polished performance and the Scottish composer was on hand to share in the warm applause. -Lawrence A.

From Bach to Kallembach, Seraphic Fire bridges the centuries in Easter program

From Bach to Kallembach, Seraphic Fire bridges the centuries in Easter program
And so the Easter Oratorio by Chicago composer James Kallembach was given its world premiere performances this week by Seraphic Fire, carrying the weight of Bach, Brahms and the other giants of choral music's past. Kallembach's stirring and dramatic work is substantial, running around 25 minutes. His Easter Oratorio contains stately, old-fashioned harmonic progressions, pedal points and passages of formal choral grandeur. But the dissonances gently woven into the fabric of the music remind you that this is not 1875. And this is a a more skeptical take than the usual sacred music, with Kallembach, choral director of the University of Chicago, using the character of Goethe's Faust to question the faith expressed by the chorus.
