The ensemble of Schola Cantorum on Hudson will be including Stephen Paulus’ three-movement set of Hadewijch II texts, Embracing All, in its May concerts. We’ve been in communication with Stephen’s son, Andrew, regarding performance history, and he reports nothing in their records about performances of the set, though he believes it must have been performed at some point.
The Schola organization is pleased to announce the premiere, in the same set of concerts, of the late Robert Schuneman’s setting of DaGioia’s “Prophecy,” from Pity the Beautiful. Schuneman’s setting is scored for mixed voices and marimba, and was written for Schola and its Artistic Director, Deborah Simpkin King.
Schola Cantorum on Hudson is a choral arts organization that equally sponsors programs of outreach/engagement, new music advocacy, and performance. Founded in 1995 by Dr. Deborah Simpkin King, the ensemble today is dually based in Manhattan and Northern NJ, and exclusively dedicated to the performance of new-music with full-season thematic programming. Schola is the sponsor of the renowned PROJECT : ENCORE™.
