      The San Francisco Lyric Chorus presents a concert of choral gems by Mozart,
      Schubert, and Mendelssohn. Mozart's beautiful Vesperae Solennes de
      Confessore showcases his ability to compose music of transcendent melody, as
      well as vibrant energy. Schubert's Mass in G is pure lyrical Schubert,
      quiet and gentle in some places, stirring and majestic in others.

      We celebrate Mendelssohn's 200th birthday with several familiar and beloved
      selections, as well as two compositions that are rarely performed. Lift
      Thine Eyes, written for treble voices, and He, Watching Over Israel from the
      oratorio, Elijah, are flowing and melodic choral classics. Say Where Is He
      Born and There Shall A Star From Jacob, from the unfinished oratorio,
      Christus, also demonstrate Mendelssohn's wonderful sense of melody. His
      five-part Kyrie in D Minor, written when he was 16, is a soaring and
      somewhat dark work that pays homage to Johann Sebastian Bach. Beati Mortui
      (Blessed Are The Dead) is an ethereal work for tenors and basses.
