Magnum Chorum: Rise Heart!
Minneapolis, MN 55426(952) 545-5623
As spring blossoms, Magnum Chorum voices lift in celebration of love both earthly and divine! Works by Antognini and Bairstow’s chromatic "I Sat Down Under His Shadow" illuminate the heavenly feast to come. Our centerpiece is Vaughan Williams’ glorious "Five Mystical Songs" from 1911, which set the 17th century poetry of George Herbert and feature string quintet, piano and baritone solo. "The Heart’s Reflection" by Elder shines with love for humanity while "Set Me as a Seal" by Rene Clausen reminds us that love is stronger than death. Music by Grieg, Sandstrom’s mysterious "Four Songs of Love," and exhilarating music from Royal Weddings past will buoy spirits in this sensuous spring serenade!
