All Music Service: 'Missa Brevis pro Serveto"
In 2008, UU interim minister Rev. Frances Dearman was inspired to write the text of a Latin Mass for Unitarians. She titled her work “Missa Brevis pro Serveto”, honoring Michael Servetus, one of the founders of our Unitarian tradition. Servetus was a Spanish theologian, scientist, and critic of the doctrine of the trinity; he was executed for heresy in Geneva in 1553. The “Missa Brevis” received its world premiere in May 2010 at the annual meeting of the Canadian Unitarian Council in Victoria BC. Our choir will present this work as the central element of this all-music service, with commentary by Mignon Dobbins.
Musicians: UUFWS Choir, Mignon Dobbins, Director; Tom Turnbull, Pianist
