SPC Book Club

MayBookClub.png

The book recounts attorney Thurgood Marshall’s defense of four young black men who were accused in 1949 of raping a white woman in the town of Groveland, north of Lakeland and east of Dade City in Lake County, where the violent, racist sheriff Willis V. McCall controlled the levers of justice. Associates thought it was suicidal for Marshall to wade into the “Florida Terror” at a time when he was irreplaceable to the burgeoning civil rights movement, but the lawyer would not shrink from the fight — not after the Klan had murdered one of Marshall’s NAACP associates involved with the case and Marshall had endured continual threats that he would be next. Thomas Friedman of the New York Times described Devil in the Grove as a “must-read, cannot put-down history.”

St. John Passion

Chilcott.png

The St. Petersburg Festival Chorus and Orchestra will perform Bob Chilcott’s “St. John Passion.” The hour-long “Passion” follows the format established by Bach. The story is narrated in recitative by a tenor evangelist, interspersed with interjections from the chorus (as the crowd) and from Pilate and Jesus. All this is interwoven with chorales and meditations sung by the choir. It includes five hymns for congregational singing.

The piece is a dramatic yet optimistic retelling of the Passion story: Jesus’s arrest and trial, Peter’s denial, Jesus’s crucifixion and death. It combines 13th- and 17th century English poems “that express deeply human responses to death, to life, and to man’s relationship with the world and with God,” the composer says, as well as texts from the King James Version.

Bob Chilcott, 64, is a British choral composer, conductor, and singer.

A freewill offering of $10 is suggested.
