This week on Going Beyond Words and ACDA Radio, Host Stan Schmidt continues with some interesting listening with two versions of Ave Verum Corpus, one by Francis Poulenc and the other by Mozart. Then for the first time, music from a new CD titled “Far In the Heavens – The Choral Music of Stephen Paulus” offered by the True Concord Voices and Orchestra from Arizona led by Eric Holton.
We performed Bach’s Christmas Oratorio (Excerpts from all six Cantatas) in a Jazz Version. Soloist, Baroque Orchestra, Jazz-Quartet and a huge Choir. Bach was a master of improvisation and would have liked it! See and listen the example on youtube “Ehre sei Gott in der Höhe” – (Glory to God in the Highest) from Part 2. We will perform it again on Jan 9th, 2018 in Munich.
