“Prophecy Fulfilled” is the theme for the Fredericksburg Chorale’s Spring Concert on Saturday, May 10, at St. Joseph’s Halle.
Performances will be at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m.
Under the direction of Mark Hierholzer, the concert will begin with a new work by Hierholzer, Genesis 5: A Prophecy.
The work presents the names in the genealogy included in Genesis 5 along with their translations from the Hebrew.
“From Adam to Noah a meaning is revealed, telling of a coming savior,” Hierholzer said. “The work is set as 11 short dances and will include with the piano, a small instrumental ensemble, violin, flute, cello and bassoon.”
He explained that “what follows is the fulfillment of the prophecy expressed in Christian liturgical texts, most notably, the mass.”
The chorale will perform Schubert’s Mass in G, a work he wrote when he was only 17 years old.
