Prepare your Heart for Lent through Music and Reflection.

Lent is a time of spiritual preparation. It is a time to reflect on one’s relationship with God and to make amends for past wrongdoings. In order to fully participate in this season of growth and renewal, it is important to prepare one’s heart for Lent.

Belle Voci has selected beautiful a cappella music aimed at cultivating a spirit of humility and repentance. Our desire is that our presentation will remind us of our need for God’s grace and mercy, and encourage us to turn away from sin and towards a life of holiness. We hope our music and stories evoke the beauty of Lent.

Overall, preparing one’s heart for Lent involves a willingness to let go of self-centeredness and to open oneself up to the transformative power of God’s love. It is a time to turn away from sin and towards a deeper relationship with Christ, and to allow the Holy Spirit to work in one’s life in a new and powerful way.

Come experience our beautiful Lent presentation on Saturday March 4th

 

JOHANNES PASSION!

CSO Chorus, Belle Voci & CSO Baroque Ensemble

Experience the Passion story set to Bach’s music!

Johann Sebastian Bach’s St John Passion is a musical setting of the Passion story, as told in the Gospel of John. It is a powerful and moving work that has long been associated with the Lenten season.

St John Passion is particularly fitting for Lent as it focuses on the suffering and death of Jesus. The work includes numerous chorales, or hymns, which are used as a way to meditate on the themes of the Passion. It also includes passages of scripture that are traditionally read during Lent, such as the account of the Last Supper and the story of the betrayal of Jesus by Judas.

Overall, Bach’s St John Passion is a beautiful and deeply meaningful work that is particularly well-suited to the Lenten season. Its powerful music and its focus on the passion of Christ make it an excellent resource for those seeking to deepen their spiritual lives during this important time of year.

You will have 2 opportunities to experience this stunning work!
