CHOIR OF KING'S COLLEGE, CAMBRIDGE IN PRINCETON ON APRIL 8, 2013
Event Date: April 8, 2013
Posted: March 19, 2013
Location: New Jersey, USA
Th e Princeton University Department of Music is thrilled to announce a concert featuring the internationally celebrated Choir of King's College, Cambridge at the Princeton University Chapel on Monday, April 8, 2013 at 7:30P
The opportunity for the Choir to add a Princeton concert to its tour schedule came about thanks to the strong connections between King's College Choir and Princeton University. Joel Williams, a choral scholar at King's College, spent his recent pre-
sdf college year singing at Trinity Church in Princeton and in one of Princeton's a cappella groups; and the director of King's College Choir, Stephen Cleobury, has known Princeton’s Director of Choirs, Gabriel Crouch, for nearly twenty years: "I was an
undergraduate at Cambridge University,” Crouch says, "and even though I went to Trinity College just down the road, I'm proud to say that I have two brothers who both sang in this incredible choir under Stephen. Later on, of course, I joined the King's
Singers, a group originally founded out of King's College Choir, so I have many reasons to be thankful for this choir. It is thrilling to think that their unmistakable sound will soon be filling our chapel!" The complete program follows:
BYRD O Lord, make thy servant Elizabeth
BYRD Sing joyfully?
GIBBONS O Lord, in thy wrath
? GIBBONS O clap your hands together
VERDI Ave Maria
BRITTEN Hymn to St. Cecilia?
BLOW My God, my God, why hast Thou forsaken me
