Psalms and Celebrations One major work is a Bach motet we have never done because it was not originally attributed to Bach, but to Telemann. More recent scholarship on Jauchzet dem Herrn has secured its place among Bach’s other great motets. It is tuneful, jubilant, and—of course—contrapuntal. Exultate Justi Ludovico Viadana In Exitu Israel Samuel Wesley An den Wassern zu Babel Heinrich Schütz Von Himmel hoch da komm ich her Johann Hermann Schein Hvalite imia Ghospodne Pavel Chesnokov Duo Seraphim…

Joseph Haydn’s Part Songs Der Greis and Die Beredsamkeit are miniature masterpieces. One is a lament on aging that the composer took so much to heart that he had the message engraved on his calling card: “Gone is all my strength!” The other is a sly, comic tribute to wine, which makes man eloquent, or so he thinks. Felix Mendelssohn charms with songs of the outdoors, praising the woods, the nightingale, and the hunt. Hugo Wolf and Johannes Brahms sing…

Tango Mass Martin Palmeri has written a splendid work, Misa a Buenos Aires or Misatango with strings and bandoneon, premiered in 1996 and performed frequently since then. This is a wonderfully successful hybrid. The chorus sings the Latin Mass with excellent contrapuntal lines, not unlike what you might expect from Bach or Mozart, but with zippier rhythm. Strings and bandoneon supply a great background that is definitely tango inspired. And the combination works! We have chosen an excellent bandoneon player…

Clara Longstreth writes of this program, “I have never received rapturous praise from singers and audiences alike equal to what has been true for Frank Martin’s Mass for Double Chorus. We sang it in 1990 as the main piece on an all-Martin Centennial Concert, and again in 2008. We now return to this masterpiece in 2019. Almost everything else on the program is new to NAS, although several are new pieces by well-known composers whose music we love.” The women…

The major piece is a world premiere of our commission from Robert Paterson for chorus and marimba. NAS audiences may remember his wizardry with an “impossible” text (Row, Row your Boat) in Life is But a Dream as well as his Choral Suite from A New Earth. The women will sing Persichetti’s Winter Cantata, that is accompanied by flute and marimba, which we enjoyed singing in 1988 and 1995, and it deserves another outing. The men will do a Britten…
