CARMINA ANGELORUM: Songs for Harp and Treble Voices
Sunday, December 9th, 2012 – 4:00pm
Trinity Episcopal, Everett
General Admission $12, Students/Seniors and Alumnae $8
Join the Seattle Girls’ Choir’s premier ensemble Prime Voci (under the direction of Jacob Winkler) and harpist Juliet Stratton for a concert of music for harp and treble voices. We begin with Benjamin Britten’s landmark A Ceremony of Carols, a haunting setting of 15th and 16th century Middle English texts. Other highlights include John Rutter’s beautiful Dancing Day, a setting of traditional English carols, and Kirke Mechem’s Seven Joys of Christmas, a fun and lively rendition of carols from around the globe.
The delicate and intricate textures of the harp are a perfect complement to the angelic voices of the girls of Prime Voci. We hope you join us for an evening of exceptionally beautiful music to celebrate the holidays with Carmina Angelorum (songs of angels).
These concerts coincide with the release of our fifth commercial recording, Carmina Angelorum: Songs for Harp and Treble Voices available for purchase HERE.
