Ancient Texts – Modern Sounds
Chora Nova, Berkeley’s 55-voice chorus, will perform a program of masterpieces that wed ancient sacred texts of Christianity, Judaism, and Hinduism to 20th century sonorities on Sunday, March 24 at 4 p.m at St. John’s Presbyterian Church, 2727 College Avenue, Berkeley. The program includes Bernstein's Chichester Psalms, with Andrés Beck-Ruiz as soprano soloist; Duruflé's Requiem, with mezzo-soprano Lisa Van der Ploeg; and selected hymns from Gustav Holst's Choral Hymns for the Rig Veda.
