The White Rose: Voices from the German Resistance

The White Rose: Voices from the German Resistance

In 1943 five students and a professor at the University of Munich were arrested, tried, and executed. They were members of The White Rose (‘Die Weiße Rose’), a clandestine group who wrote and distributed leaflets calling on Germans to resist Hitler. Award-winning vocal ensemble SANSARA performs ancient and modern choral works alongside readings from the White Rose group’s letters and diaries. The majority of these texts have never appeared in English and speak movingly of courage and conscience.

Philip Moore - Three Prayers of Dietrich Bonhoeffer
1. Morning prayers
2. Prayers in the time of distress
3. Evening Prayers
Rudolf Mauersberger - Wie liegt die Stadt so wüst
Arvo Pärt - Da pacem Domine
