Angels, Birds, and Witches – Spring 2006

angels birds and witches
On Friday, May 5, 2006, Women’s Voices Chorus performed an airborne program of music inspired by things that fly. Mendelssohn’s “Surrexit pastor bonus,” with its Easter angel dialogue; Emma Lou Diemer’s Hope is the Thing , a suite of Emily Dickinson settings with references to our featured friends; and John Govedas’s “Mulligatawny Macbeth,” a setting of the Witches’ Song from Macbeth replete with shrieks and cackles. This concert included guest instrumentalists on oboe and organ.
