2012 May - Journey to Spring at Mission Santa Clara
Program Highlights: "Revecy venir du printans" by Claude le Jeune, "Salut Printemps" by Claude Debussy, "Bendición" by Pablo Ortiz, world premiere by Ted Hearne commissioned for our 45th anniversary. Post-concert reception.
How do we arrive at the joys of spring? In our Journey to Spring, join us on a magic ride, from the primal spells and incantations of "Urok" by Slovenian composer Lojze Lebic, to the delight of exuberant recorder accompaniment in le Jeune's "Welcome to Spring". Slovenian repertoire from our recent European tour is featured alongside our special American section, which includes settings of e.e. cummings' poetry: Vincent Persichetti's Spring Cantata, Gwyneth Walker's "I thank you God" and "in time of daffodils" by Kirstina Rasmussen. Journey with us from the mysterious to the sublime!
