Our Spring 2016 program Let All The World Sing! is one of serenity and reflection, as well as one of joy and passion.  You’re not going to want to miss this concert!
 
French Romantic composer Gabriel Fauré’s (1845-1924) beloved, serene Requiem is meant to convey eternal peace, rest, and comfort.  His Cantique de Jean Racine is a beautiful prayer of the early morning, offering praise and requesting divine blessing as one begins the day.
 
English composer Benjamin Britten’s (1913-1976) energetic Festival Te Deum is a vibrant prayer of praise and thanksgiving.
 
One of the most influential English composers of the 20th century, Ralph Vaughan Williams (1872-1958) creates lyrical settings of poems by the gifted English metaphysical poet, George Herbert (1593-1633), in Five Mystical Songs, expressing both quiet passion and fervent intensity.
