From St. Norbert College, February 23, 2016

The 150-voice Dudley Birder Chorale will present "The Seven Last Words of Christ" in the St. Norbert Abbey church at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. on the fourth Sunday of Lent, March 13. The chorale presents this program every other year as an ecumenical concert in observance of the Lenten season.

The chorale's performance will be conducted by Dudley Birder and accompanied by Jeffrey Verkuilen at the abbey Casavant organ. Between the seven movements of the piece, members of the local clergy will offer brief words of reflection and meditation.

Composed by Théodore Dubois in 1867, "The Seven Last Words of Christ" is one of the world's most popular Lenten music works, with hundreds of performances presented each year throughout the world.
