The Mississippi Chorus Spring Concert
The title of this Spring Concert says it all: Ancient Widsom, Timeless Music. You will experience Mendelssohns beautiful setting of Psalm 42, Like As the Hart, which he composed in 1837 while on his honeymoon. Robert Schumann wrote that in this piece Mendelssohn had established the highest standard which has been achieved amongst recent church music, and Mendelssohn himself considered it the very best of his sacred output no small detail coming from the composer of Elijah and St. Paul.

The concert includes John Rutter's TE DEUM, one of the most ancient, and inspiring, of Christian liturgical texts. At one time it was believed to have been jointly written by St. Ambrose and St. Augustine, but recent research suggests it is even older, originating early in the fourth century as a Preface, Sanctus, and concluding prayer for the Mass of the Easter Vigil; there are even echoes of the psalms heard at several points in the text. John Rutters setting was written in 1988 for the Guild of Church Musicians, celebrating their centenary at a service of thanksgiving in Canterbury Cathedral.

In tribute the Red Army Chorus who perished in a plane crash in December 2016 on their way to Syria to perform a New Year's Eve Concert, The Mississippi Chorus will perform Salvation Is Created, by Pavlov Chesnokov. The text for the famous hymn is based on a passage from Psalm 74: "But you, O God, are my king from of old; you bring salvation upon the earth."

Our spring concert will conclude with the Mississippi Youth Chorale joining forces with us to sing Rutters beautiful Psalm 27. The vocal writing is inspiring, and well all enjoy hearing the solo clarinet part that adds so much musical meaning to the text.
