Musica Vocale presents "Singet!"


Sunday, March 22, 2015 - 14:00 to 16:00

Musica Vocale

Arnold Epley, conductor

SING TO THE LORD! Our second concert of our 6th season features three major works from the German choral repertory begin with this startling injunction. Sing! 

The three giants who have given us brilliant works setting this test are Heinrich Schuetz, Johann Sebastion Bach and Hugo Distler.  Distler and Schuetz have set the entirety of Ps. 98, while Bach's three movement piece for double choirs, the grandest of all his motets, uses a mirroring text from   Ps. 149.  Distler offers a mid-20th century work of energized, bravura choral writing. 

These masterworks are contrasted with the utter simplicity and melodic beauty of Franz Schubert's Mass in G, the most popular of Schubert's masses. Providing context the concert includes a very early pre-Schuetz motet, chorale-based, by Lupus Hellingk, (1544), surely never performed here. From the turn of the 19th-20th century, from another less known but important German, we will hear Georg Schumann's beautiful "Das is ein kochlichest ding".

There it is: Hellinck, Schuetz, Bach, Schubert, G. Schumann, Distler. SINGET DEM HERRN!
