In Five Mystical Songs,
Ralph Vaughan Williams has set writings of
George Herbert, a devout Anglican priest, in serene and meditative
melodies that reach exultant closure.
orchestrated Trumpet Concerto is a favorite of the trumpet
repertoire and a fitting tribute to the memory of Mike Tunnell who shared
his remarkable talents with us until his death in December, 2014.
Mendelssohnís Hymn of
is an uplifting journey that proceeds from worldly darkness to
unbridled joy. This choral symphony is based on biblical texts and
reflects the essence of meditation, worship, and celebration.
