Carmina Angelorum: Songs for Harp and Treble Voices
Seattle Girls' Choir is eager to announce a new concert for the holiday season, in collaboration with harpist Juliet Stratton, and featuring our senior level choir Prime Voci.  Carmina Angelorum ("Songs of Angels") is a collection of three song cycles for harp and treble voices, blending 14th-16th century texts and renaissance melodies with rich and luscious 20th (and 21st!) century harmonies.  We are particularly excited that one of the cycles is a soon to be published piece by American composer James Bingham.

The three song cycles:
At times haunting and ethereal, at others frantic and raging, Benjamin Britten's Ceremony of Carols, Op. 28 has become a staple of children's and women's choirs everywhere, and in many ways the inspiration for the other two works on the program.

John Rutter's Dancing Day (1974) is less harmonically challenging than the Britten, though no less beautiful.  It is comprised of six carols joined together by harp interludes, all infused with Rutter's brilliant contrapuntal vocal lines.  

James Bingham's Procession & Carols is a newer work, soon to be published.  The most challenging work on the program vocally and musically, it is heavily influenced by the Britten with similar unexpected harmonic shifts and rich tonalities.
