Voices’ December concert, Winter Joy, features our full company performing Kirk Mechem’s Seven Joys of Christmas – a setting of lesser-known carols from different countries in order to paint different aspects of joy for the Christmastide; Winter (from the forgottens) by Dan Locklair – a four-movement choral cycle, based on texts by 19th and early 20th century American poets, filled with vivid imagery expressing the magic and mystery that are a part of winter; and an invigorating and powerful gospel setting of Mary’s prayerful expression of joy – Robert Ray’s Gospel Magnificat, complete with rhythm section.
Our chamber ensemble, Cantari, will present a set of a cappella pieces including Salamone Rossi’s “Elohim hashivenu,” Robert Applebaum’s Maoz tsur,” a setting of the first principal of Kwanzaa (Unity) by Zanaida Robles; Nathaniel Dett’s “Ave Maria,” and a Nigerian Christmas song entitled “Keresimesi q’dun de o” arranged by Wendall Whalum, with several other selections.
Voices programs are supported by the North Carolina Arts Council, a division of the Department of Natural and Cultural Resources, with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts.
