Fall Concert
Directed by C. Paul Heins

Saturday, December 5, 2009 at 7:00 PM

Location: Dahlgren Chapel, main campus of Georgetown University

Ticket Prices: free; no tickets required.

Running time: approximately 60 minutes (no intermission)
Synopsis: The Concert Choir’s fall program, “Divine Image,” compiles great musical settings of texts which represent God in various forms. The proposed program will open with Dan Forrest’s powerful “Arise, Shine!” – a setting of Isaiah 60, in which God is illustrated as light. Samuel Barber’s “Agnus Dei,” a choral setting of the composer’s famous Adagio for Strings, depicts Christ as a sacrificial lamb, and is paired with Aaron Copland’s “Help Us, O Lord” (an early work from his study with Nadia Boulanger): both texts represent God as helper and healer. Jean Belmont Ford’s “Divine Image” – a setting of William Blake’s poem – celebrates the commonalities of humanity’s depictions of God. The major piece on the program will be J.S. Bach’s motet Jesu, meine freude (Jesus, my joy).

Special Notes: The Concert Choir welcomes Prof. Russell J. Weissman, organist, as our guest artist on this program.
