Heavenly Spheres: Sacred Songs of the Night Sky
“Look at the stars! look, look up at the skies!
O look at all the fire-folk sitting in the air!”
– Gerard Manley Hopkins
Gaze into the stars with Sacred and Profane Chamber Chorus, under the direction of Rebecca Seeman, as we sing sacred works inspired by the night sky. This ethereal program will feature timeless works by Hildegard, Victoria, Lange-Müller, Grieg, Olsson, Kverno, and Poulenc. We will also sing exciting pieces by living composers, including Shawn Crouch’s The Light of the Common Day, Nico Muhly’s Bright Star Carol, and Jonathan Dove’s <em>Seek Him That Maketh the Seven Stars</em>. We are thrilled to be joined by the renowned organist Jonathan Dimmock for this moving holiday concert.
