Unus Cantus - Una Lingua

Location: California, USA
Choir type: Community Choirs
Voicing: Mixed
  • The basis of my thesis & recital is the various regional pronunciations of ecclesiastical Latin in the choral repertoire.  These were in use prior to 1903 when Pope St. Pius X desired the sole use of the Italianate pronunciation.  Since that year, each country began to gradually drop their traditional pronunciations to adopt the Italianate pronunciation for use in liturgies.  The choral world also followed this trend.  My choirs will be exhibiting the various traditional pronunciations used before the 20th century. 
  • This concert is being performed in partial fulfillment of my Master of Music degree in Choral Conducting from CSULA.
  • I will be conducting works in English, French, Germanic, and Italianate Latins, sung by a mixed choir of church and community choristers accompanied by chamber orchestra.
  • The repertoire will include the following: Faure: Requiem (w/ Faure's originally-intended orchestration) in French Latin, Palestrina: Super flumina Babylonis, Gabrieli: Plaudite (for 3 choirs), Hildegard von Bingen: Ordo virtutum (excerpts), Mozart: Laudate Dominum, Byrd: Ave verum corpus, and Parry: I Was Glad When They Said Unto Me.
  • The concert is open to the public. A suggested donation of $10 will be collected to help defray the costs of the recital. 
  • Location: St. Paschal Baylon Church, 155 E. Janss Road, Thousand Oaks, CA 91360.
