Sweet Music Here 

The May 2020 concert will explore twentieth-century composers who have expressed love, adventure, and freedom with music which frames life as a series of discoveries and transformations. Beginning with the ancient acclimation, Laudate Dominum, Ivo Antognini sets an exciting declamation of praise which ignites the evening with its drive and intensity.

Canadian composer, Stephen Chatman, has taken nineteenth-century, Romantic poetry in There Is Sweet Music Here and created a cycle of four compositions for oboe and chorus which delight with a twentieth-century lens.

The American composers, Kirke Mechem and Jean Berger have used choral trilogies to create snapshots of human experience from earlier times. Berger adopts the poetry of Emily Dickenson with clever musical equivalents while Mechem transforms early American folk legends.

Richard Rossi’s Of Beauty, represents the lure of God’s creation where, “in beauty [we] have found a home.” There is indeed “sweet music,” here to be topped off with the operatic flair of Verdi’s choruses adding excitement to the evening as our one, nineteenth-century composer.
