New Amsterdam Singers returns to two favorites from past seasons: J.S. Bach’s beloved five-voice motet, Jesu, Meine Freude, and the uplifting double chorus motet by Heinrich Schütz on Psalm 84, which opens with the line “How lovely is thy dwelling place” and continues later with “The sparrow hath found a house and the swallow a nest”— a phrase that inspired composer Caroline Shaw’s 2017 setting of the same psalm, and the swallow. Recent works by acclaimed American composers Abbie Betinis, Rosephanye Powell, and Zanaida Robles add a joyful bow to the season.
All NAS singers and staff are fully vaccinated. All audience members will be asked to remain masked throughout the performance.
