Commonwealth Chorale Presents: Bruckner- Te Deum; Chilcott-Jubilate; Bernstein-Choruses from The Lark
Sun, March 15 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT$35
Reverence and Joy
Melt your winter blues away with our richly textured program of brass, chorus, and more. Bruckner considered his Te Deum his favorite (and possibly greatest) work. Gustav Mahler described it as written “for the tongues of angels, heaven-blest, chastened hearts, and souls purified in the fire!” Bernstein’s French and Latin choruses, written as incidental music for The Lark, will also feature narration from the play, based on the life of Joan of Arc. Finally, Bob Chilcott’s joyful Jubilate draws on both traditional Latin text and verses from the poet-priest Gerard Manley Hopkins.
Soloists: Chelsea Blaser, soprano; Vera Savage, mezzo-soprano, Neil Ferreira, tenor; David Cushing, bass
