Triangle Jewish Chorale Concert: Folk Songs from Jewish Traditions
Dec 10 @ 3:00 pm

Triangle Jewish Chorale

Jews have been singing for millennia, wherever they have found a home. Their songs have been heard not only in synagogues but also around campfires, in theaters, alongside babies’ cribs, at the golden stones of Jerusalem.  The Triangle Jewish Chorale lifts its voices in Hebrew, Yiddish, Ladino, and English to offer a range of songs that have, over time, come to be considered the music of the people — folk music.

If you enjoy singing and want to experience the pleasure of performing Jewish music with a congenial group, please consider joining us. We are especially seeking Tenors and Basses. Auditions will be held on January 16 and January 23.

A perfect start to the Christmas season.

The King’s Singers
Jan 26 @ 8:00 pm

The King's Singers

Half a century ago, six choral scholars at King’s College Cambridge formed their own choir. They took a bold approach, rewriting the rules about what classically trained vocal ensembles could sing and how they could sing it, mixing the contemporary with the classical and the sacred with the secular. During the last fifty years, twenty-six King’s Singers have come and gone, but they have all had in common a democratic musical sensibility and consummate technique, as much at home with Byrd as with the Beatles. “The King’s Singers have the same microscopic perfection one sometimes hears from purely instrumental chamber musicians,” declares The Washington Post.

For their fiftieth anniversary the King’s Singers dazzle with a typically wide-ranging program. They begin with an anniversary commission from former member Bob Chilcott before moving back in time to renaissance and romantic compositions. They surprise with a set of spirituals that includes arrangements of U2 and Paul Simon and end the night’s first half with a new commission by firebrand composer Nico Muhly. The concert closes with a panoply of audience favorites and new arrangements.

Program

  • Bob Chilcott: The Human Family (Anniversary Commission)
  • Henry Ley: Domine, Jesu Christe
  • Thomas Tallis: In Manus Tuas, Domine
  • William Byrd: Sing Joyfully
  • Toby Hession: Master of Music (Anniversary Commission)
  • Edward Elgar: O Happy Eyes
  • Sydney Lovatt: The Little Green Lane
  • Ralph Vaughan Williams: Rest
  • Francis Poulenc: Salve Regina
  • Traditional, arr. Robert Rice: Down by the Riverside
  • Paul Simon, arr. Andrew Jackman: Some Folks’ Lives Roll Easy
  • U2, arr. Bob Chilcott: MLK
  • Nico Muhly: Forthcoming Anniversary Commission
  • Geoffrey Poole: Wymondham Chants

The Tallis Scholars
Apr 11 @ 8:00 pm

Tallis Scholars

Over the last four decades, London’s Tallis Scholars have become unquestioned authorities of renaissance polyphony — “ethereal and yet full-blooded, uplifting and yet grounded,” declares The Guardian. Their sterling reputation stems both from a steady stream of first-class singers and from the inventive programming of founder Peter Phillips, who approaches historic texts with reverence for their past and energy for ensuring their relevance in the future. Phillips brings that philosophy to bear with War and Peace, a poignant program of music dealing with suffering, death, and redemption, delivered in remembrance of the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I.

In Durham, the Tallis Scholars sing the program, fashioned as a mass, inside the soaring space of Duke Chapel. The ten Scholars begin with “L’homme armé,” the renaissance root of many subsequent masses, then proceed to the glorious Kyrie of Josquin’s own Missa l’Homme armé. They turn next to Arvo Pärt’s ethereal and deeply moving tribute to Mary Magdalene, The Woman with the Alabaster Box, and Tavener’s Song for Athene, sung at Princess Diana’s funeral. The concert ends with Spanish composer Victoria’s Libera Me (1603), a timeless prayer for the release of the dead that has created solace in the midst of tumult for more than four centuries.

Program

  • Monody: L’Homme armé
  • Josquin: “Kyrie,” from Missa l’homme armé
  • Guerrero: “Gloria,” from Missa batalla
  • Pärt: The Woman with the Alabaster Box
  • Jean Mouton: Quis Dabit Oculis
  • Lobo: Versa Est
  • Guerrero: “Credo,” from Missa batalla
  • Victoria: “Requiem Aeternam,” from Missa pro Defunctis
  • Guerrero: “Sanctus,” from Missa l’homme armé
  • Tavener: Song for Athene
  • Palestrina: “Agnus Dei,” from Missa Papae Marcelli
  • Victoria: “Libera Me,” from Missa pro Defunctis
