and Chorale to Present
Night of Mystery and
Wonder Dec. 4
SHREVEPORT, LA -- A "Night of Mystery
and Wonder -- Christmas with Camerata" will be presented by Centenary College's
Camerata and Chorale singers at 8 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 4 in the Hurley Music
Building. The program is free and open to the public.
Dr. Julia Brasher Thorn will conduct
and Gay Grosz will accompany.
The program of sacred choral
music of Advent is based around the four settings of the text O Magnum
Mysterium. For centuries composers have been inspired by the
beautiful text with its juxtaposition of the birth of the new-born King
amongst the lowly animals and shepherds.
Additional highlights include a Spanish
carol with Dr. Horace English, bass baritone. Gamelan is a
technically challenging piece, which imitates the bell-like gamelan music
at Bali and Java, and the Poulenc Christmas Motets.
