Spring Concert Series - April 2018

Calling My Children Home -
American Spirituals & Folk Music

Our title piece by Doyle Lawson, Charles Waller, and Robert Yates, expresses a longing for reunion.  The chorus says:

I'm lonesome for my precious children,
they live so far away.
Oh, may they hear my calling
and come back home someday.

Folk tunes like Calling My Children Home express a longing to reconnect. Other folk songs included on the program include: Aaron Copland's lullaby, The Little Horses, Donald Ripplinger's mountain ballad, He's Gone Away, Jack Halloran's arrangement of Stephen Foster's Camptown Races, Robert De Cormier's Grandfather's Clock, and Ward Swingle's Country Dances.

American spirituals express a desire to connect with the divine sometimes through haunting melodies and simple yet profound harmonies. Marc Hafso's arrangement of Down in the River to Pray and Norman Luboff's Deep River are wonderful examples. Other spirituals on the program which are more rollicking include: Moses Hogan's Ride the Chariot, Jester Hairston's Hold On!, Alice Parker & Robert Shaw's I Got Shoes, Andre Thomas' Goin' Up to Glory, and Jerry Weseley Harris' In that Great Gettin' Up Mornin'.

We are pleased to premier yet another new piece by James Scott, Like Sails Upon the Sea.  Mr. Scott, a bass in Cora Voce, is an artist, poet, author and composer.  His artistic expressions are often inspired by the flora and fauna found near his home on Hood Canal.

On our Sunday afternoon program at Fox Island United Church of Christ, Cora Voce welcomes from Gig Harbor High School, the Meistersingers (mixed choir) and Bella Voce (women's choir.)  Don't miss hearing them in this beautiful venue!
