Choir type: Chamber Choirs and Vocal Ensembles
The Summer Seasonals present:
Longing and Remembrance
Motets of Victoria, Palestrina, Byrd, Tallis, Guerrero, and others.
Join us for our final concert of our third season, as we take you on a journey
from the willow glades of Babylon on the banks of the Euphrates through the
desert sands to the majestic towers and gleaming domes of ancient Jerusalem.
Come with us on our travels as we recollect in vivid hues, longed-for memories
of fountains and pomegranates after the rain, and bide with us through sepia
tones of remembrance for that which has been and may yet again.
