From sacred music about mountains—specifically, the Temple Mount in Jerusalem—to music inspired by mountains to music from the mountains, particularly fiddle tunes and folk songs from our own Appalachians, this concert was a musical mountain tour. Highlights: Nicola Porpora’s “Ecce nunc” (1742) in its first modern performance; Arvo Part’s “Peace Upon You, Jerusalem,” Schubert’s “Coronach,” and a folk song, “At the Foot of Yonders Mountain,” collected and arranged by the folklorist Annabel Morris Buchanan.
