Cor Cantiamo, a professional choral ensemble in residence at Northern Illinois University School of Music, will present their final 2015-16 season concert at Saint Luke’s Episcopal Church in Evanston, IL on Sunday May 22.
Cor Cantiamo will be performing works that will fully display the breadth and talent of the ensemble. The performance will be an array of beauty and drama that will include World War I commemorative works, songs about love and loss, as well as sounds from Brazil.
Cor Cantiamo is thrilled to continue their work with Minnesota composer Timothy C. Takach and perform his composition A Worshipper and a Man.
“A composer can only hope to have his or her work performed with as much accuracy and emotion as Cor Cantiamo. They pour themselves into their work as musicians and as high caliber singers. They truly bring the music to life,” said Takach regarding his experience collaborating with Cor Cantiamo.
This concert will also highlight the music of Morten Lauridsen with a performance of his choral cycle “Mid-Winter Songs.” Other featured work at this concert will include World War 1 commemorative works from renowned composer Cecilia McDowall, a setting of John McCrae’s poem, “In Flander’s Field,” and selections from Renaissance master Tomás Luis de Victoria’s Mass for the Dead. Other works include contemporary psalm settings by Jake Runestad, Roxanna Panufnik, and John Metcalf and choral music from Brazil.TICKETS
