Holiday Series - November 2019

Hymn to the Creator of Light, by John Rutter


image by Valentin Wallet

"John Rutter's beautiful double-choir motet, Hymn to the Creator of Light, was written for the dedication of the Herbert Howells memorial window in Gloucester Cathedral in 1992.  Few music teachers in twentieth-century Britain were more influential than Howells, who greeted his first class at London's Royal College of Music in 1920 and his last over 50 years later.  Rutter (b. 1945) carries Howells' torch in his dual roles as a prolific choral composer and conductor of the superb Cambridge Singers.  As always, Rutter is sensitive to the text, but he does especially lovely work here with the world 'light'."  [from The Dale Warland Singers Program Notes, by Brian Newhouse]

Winter Series - February 2020

Phoenix, by Peter Hall


image by Mystic Art Design

"The image of the Phoenix rising out of the ashes comes originally from Egyptian mythology but was taken over by the early Christians as a symbol of the resurrection of Christ from the dead.  From its opening bars, this work, with its unique combination of instruments and voices, succeeds in transporting both performers and listeners.  Indeed, this transcendence to a "resurrection experience," the essence of this piece, is captured so vividly through the musical medium as the drama of the text unfolds."  [Program notes by Carl Crosier, Honolulu, March 1987]

Spring Series - March 2020

The Making of the Drum, by Bob Chilcott


image by Paul Zoetemeijer

"In 1984 I was very fortunate to visit Uganda, where a dream maker made me a beautiful drum with a snakeskin head.  I'll never forget sitting in the place to come home and seeing by chance the baggage handlers loading my drum with incredible respect and care.  The drum to them is a living spirit.

The poems I set are a celebration of how that spirit is brought to life.  The piece enacts the ritual of constructing the drum, whose component parts are drawn from the surrounding nature - a nature that gives of itself almost sacrificially.  We hear how the goat is killed for its skin, how the tree, which bleeds cedar-dark when cut, bestows the drum's body, and how the sticks and rattles are taken, all to begin a new life as companions to the gods, music and the dance."  Bob Chilcott
