VAUGHAN WILLIAMS and BRITTEN

New Mexico Symphonic Chorus

3 pm, Sunday, February 26, 2017, at First United Methodist Church

 

Roger Melone, conductor

 

Vaughan Williams,

Mass in G minor for soloists and double chorus

Britten,

Hymn to St. Cecilia, op. 27

Festival Te Deum for chorus and organ, op. 32

Maribeth Gunning, organist

 

Hail Britannia! Sung at the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in Westminster Abbey, the Mass in G minor is technically difficult, but harmonically astounding. Vaughan Williams studied with Maurice Ravel in Paris, and dedicated this work to his close friend, Gustav Holst. Benjamin Britten sets W.H. Auden’s poem to a wondrous English medieval carol in Hymn to St. Cecilia. His imaginative Festival Te Deum op. 32 has the freedom of Gregorian chant, but passion and energetic rhythm from the organ.
