Copland: In the beginning
Whitacre: When David heard
Pärt: Seven Magnificat Antiphons
and
Negro Spirituals arranged by Hogan, Jennings and Washburn

Copland’s amazing In the Beginning, his setting of the Creation story, heads this programme of choral masterpieces portraying the beginning and ending of life. Arvo Pärt’s unique work, Sieben Magnificat Antiphonen provides a powerful contrast with Whitacre’s deeply moving When David heard while the concert ends with the choir’s hallmark rendition of some beautiful Spirituals.
