The Living Word
This program features four of Hildegard of Bingen’s most ecstatic chants, including O Jerusalem and O Virga ac Diadema, interwoven with new works by acclaimed composers Caroline Shaw, Caleb Burhans, Joel Phillip Friedman and Daniel Thomas Davis. In addition, Jacqueline Horner-Kwiatek makes her debut as a composer, using her years of experience studying and singing this music to provide a unique and personal vision. The new works are based on, or influenced by, Hildegard’s philosophic writings and her visions.
A Midwinter Feast
A holiday program featuring beloved English medieval and Renaissance carols, including There is no Rose, A Virgin Unspotted and Green Groweth the Holly (attributed to Henry VIII). Also included are English carols from the 20th and 21st century by Nicola Lefanu and Peter Maxwell Davies, and new arrangements of old favorites, including In the Bleak Midwinter, The Cherry Tree Carol and The Holly and the Ivy.
We are also interested in creating programs in collaboration with presenters, according to the needs of the venue or concert series.
