FALSTAFF AND SHAKESPEARE

We are proud to sponsor Verdi's Falstaff in conjunction with the celebration of the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death in 2016, because the opera is based on Shakespeare's The Merry Wives of Windsor and scenes from his Henry IV.

WHAT IS THE OPERA ABOUT

Falstaff, the title character is running out of money and looking for a quick fix. So he sets his sights on two rich women, and writes them love letters. But he doesn't fool anyone, and ultimately the "fat Knight" learns his lesson.

“In 1946, I crowned Our Lady of Fatima as Queen of the World and the following year, through the Pilgrim Virgin, she set forth as though to claim her dominion, and the favors she performs along the way are such that we can hardly believe what we are seeing with our eyes.” —Pope Pius XII



About the Statue

The Pilgrim Virgin Statue of Fatima is one of two “twin” statues sculpted in 1947 by famous sculptor José Thedim. It was made according to the precise instructions of Sister Lucia, one of the visionaries of Fatima. Her desire was that the pilgrim image represent Our Lady’s position when she revealed herself as the Immaculate Heart to the Shepherds in 1917.

Our Lady of Fatima through the Pilgrim Virgin Statue, set forth from Fatima in May, 1947 to claim her dominion and become the Pilgrim of the World, carrying first to devastated Europe after WWII the message of peace. (This first statue was retired and is on display at the Basilica of Our Lady of Fatima in Portugal.).

On October 13, 1947 in the presence of some 200,000 pilgrims at Fatima, the second “twin” statue was blessed by the Bishop of Liera, Fatima, and commissioned to serve as the Pilgrim Virgin who would carry the blessings of Fatima throughout the world. The Bishop prayed that Mary herself accompany the statue wherever it goes.

The statue has visited more than 100 countries, including Russia and China, bringing the great message of salvation and hope, “the peace plan from Heaven,” to countless millions of people. Many miracles and signal graces have been reported wherever the statue has traveled.

“Never in the history of the Church have charismas descended in such abundance on the people of God as through the Pilgrim Virgin.”—Rev. Joaquim Alonso, archivist at Fatima

About His Majestie's Clerkes




Advanced tickets are now on sale. His Majestie's Clerkes is a professional male vocal ensemble specialising in 15th to 17th century unaccompanied music as well as modern works and commissions. For this their debut concert, the six-man ensemble will perform early and modern music drawn from the rich repertoire dedicated to Our Lady, as well as from the biblical Song of Songs.

The music performed will range from the early 16th century, typified by the work of Josquin des Prez, the master composer of the High Renaissance, to the British 21st century composer Howard Skempton with his beautiful minimalist setting of words from the Song of Songs. Also heard will be music by Nicolas Gombert and Andrea Gabrieli, two masters of the mid sixteenth century. British composer Ivan Moody's Latin setting of four texts from the Song of Songs completes the program.

The ensemble is under the overall artistic direction of Richard Childress, a Chicago area native who is now a professional countertenor based in Great Britain. He was the founder of the original Chicago ensemble His Majestie's Clerkes, which subsequently became the choir Bella Voce.

The five men sing countertenor, tenor and bass, a voicing which enables the group to come very close to the sound and performing pitch of early vocal music. The singers come together from Chicago, Great Britain and New York, their voices chosen to produce a rich, smooth and superlative sound which, when combined with the beauty of Chicago's historic St John Cantius Church, will be an unmissable event.
