COPLAND, In the beginning
PÄRT, Seven Magnificat Antiphons
WHITACRE, When David heard
and Spirituals arranged by Hogan, Jennings and Washburn


Copland’s amazing setting of the Creation story, In the beginning, heads this programme on the theme of the dawn and dusk of life. Arvo Pärt’s inspired setting of the widely known Christmas Antiphons – Sieben Magnificat Antiphonen – provides a powerful contrast to Whitacre’s deeply moving motet When David heard and the concert will end with the choir’s hallmark rendition of beautiful spirituals.



Conductor, Janet Lincé
