Join us as we explore different kinds of crying of the human voice. This concert contains two works written for string quartet and oboe, and features choral singing that emulates sighs of lamentation and grief, as well as elations of joy and bliss. One of Bachs earliest cantatas, Aus Der Tiefen rufe ich, Herr, zu dir, is a setting of Psalm 130, the famous Out of the depths I call to you, Lord. Throughout the work, Bach captures the psalmists pleading and sorrowful cries for mercy and redemption. Truly an underperformed gem in the Baroque repertoire, the closing movement features a three-subject fugue that is sure to leave you breathless! These cries for help are paired with a modern work by John Michael Trotta, A Breath of Ecstasy, and features seven movements of texts by Sara Teasdale. Set against a backdrop of oboe and strings, the choirs breath fuels full-body exclamations of joy and transcendence you wont want to miss.
