Americana 2: Exploring North American choral music

Aaron Copland In the beginning
Dan Forrest Good night, dear heart
Randall Thompson Alleluia
Ernst Toch Geographical fugue
David del Tredici Acrostic song
Eric Whitacre When David heard

Plus folksong and spiritual arrangements by James Erb, Robert Fountain and John Rutter

A programme exploring some jewels of 20th-century American choral music. Copland’s choral fantasia joyfully expounds the Genesis story of creation, while Whitacre’s deeply felt setting of a line from the Second Book of Samuel really plucks at the heartstrings. The programme will include both a speaking chorus (Toch) and a whispering chorus (del Tredici) as well as Randall Thompson’s classic setting of just one word.
