Date: Sunday, May 3, 4PM
Venue: Elliot Church of Newton, Newton, MA
More Info: Music of Arvo Pärt, Eric Whitacre, Hildegard von Bingen and distinguished Welsh composer Hilary Tann, featuring guest artist Peggy Pearson, solo oboe. We are honored to present the New England premiere of Tann's "Exultet Terra," as recreated for Cappella Clausura, based upon an original commission from the Hanson Institute for American Music. This spacious work, for double choir and double reed quintet, is paired with equally spacious and evocative pieces of our own time by Pärt and Whitacre and music by the 10th century mystic Hildegard von Bingen.
