Song of Songs: Settings Ancient and Modern

Saturday, May 42019
7:30 p.m.
St. Paul’s Memorial Church

Charlottesville, VA

The Song of Songs is one of the strangest and most beautiful books in the Bible. Its erotic love poetry makes no mention of God or Wisdom, the Law or morality. To be considered sacred literature it must be understood symbolically, as an allegory of the relationship between God and humans. The book has inspired artists and musicians for centuries, and this program combines music from the Renaissance and the present day, with works by Anerio, Senfl, Moody, and Gjeilo.

Tickets are $20 for adults, $15 for seniors age 65 and older, and $5 for students and children. They are available in advance from New Dominion Bookshop at 404 East Main St, Charlottesville; from Greenberry's in the Barracks Road Shopping Center; and at the door.
