Saturday & Sunday, 5 & 6 April

    St. Martin's Chamber Choir
    Audience and Singer Favorites: Echoes from Twenty Years

    As voted on by the audience and singers in our September Echoes concert (see Conductor’s Choice concert), the repertoire for this concert will be drawn from past concerts and announced early in 2014. But you may be assured that it will contain a wealth of gems that many will recognize and yearn to hear again. In Saturday’s concert St. Martin’s returns to St. Elizabeth’s Church on the Auraria Campus, a beloved venue that has been missed by many over the past few years. Sunday’s concert is in the excellent acoustics of the exciting new venue for this season in Wheat Ridge. These two represent both the old and the new in this anniversary season.

    Saturday, April 5, 7:30 pm
    St. Elizabeth’s Church, Auraria Campus, Denver

    Seicento Baroque Ensemble
    Don’t miss this novel concert of Voices and Viols, when Seicento Baroque Ensemble brings to life lush music of German baroque masters Schütz, Schein, Scheidt. Even for serious Early Music enthusiasts, the chance to hear a consort of viols is unusual, but adding choir and vocal soloists creates a sonorous experience nearly as historic as the music itself. Artistic Director Evanne Browne leads her 32-voice ensemble, nationally-known gambists Yayoi Barrack, Tina Chancey, Sandra Miller, Rene Schiffer and Mary Springfels, and highly-reviewed vocal soloists Amanda Balestrieri, Marjorie Bunday, Steven Soph and Adam Ewing. Learn more about these beautiful, rarely-heard period instruments in a pre-concert talk by the players themselves.

    British Folksongs and Partsongs: Celtic Echoes

Here, a broad sampling of folksong arrangements by Vaughan Williams, Holst and Stanford (such as “Loch Lomond” and “Blow away the morning dew”) will be combined with slightly more sophisticated partsongs by Elgar, Parry and Pearsall (“Lay a Garland” and “My love dwelt in a Northern Land”) in celebrating this “special relationship.”
