British Choral Works

Friday, November 01, 2013

Hear choral works by three contemporary English composers on this New Sounds program, all of which invite comparisons between spiritual and mystical realms and that of reality on Earth.  Listen to Tarik O’Regan’s “The Ecstasies Above,” a setting of Edgar Allen Poe’s lyric poem Israfel (after the angel “whose heart-strings are a lute, and who has the sweetest voice of all God’s creatures”), painting quite the vision of heaven versus that of the lowly human condition. Also, O’Regan’s work is unusually scored; for full chorus, string quartet, and 8 vocal soloists [two separate SATB quartets.]
