Cappella Romana – Ivan Moody: Greek Liturgy
The Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom
Peter Jermihov, conductor

Greek Liturgy was written in 2016 at the request of Dr. Peter Jermihov, who will conduct these Northwest premiere performances. Commissioned by Dr. Jermihov's Society of St. Romanos in Chicago, Moody's work strives to align his compositional gifts with the chant traditions that have come before.

He writes, "If we treat the Church's chant traditions as a life-giving spring, we can find the courage to work with them, to become co-creators; they are not there to imprison us or to be endlessly reproduced with no understanding. And in finding that courage we can become contributors to the rich and varied beauty of liturgical art, aiming always to glorify God."

Doors open at 7:00pm. Walk-up tickets will be available at the Marion St. & Terry Ave. door only. Those who have purchased tickets in advance, are entering with a Friends of Cathedral Music membership card, or are on the will-call list may enter at any entrance.
