Songs of Love and Light

SONGS OF LOVE AND LIGHT will feature a diverse collection of choral music spanning from the late Romantic period through the 21st century. From the rich beautiful harmony of Brahms' O schöne Nacht to the stunning a cappella music of contemporary Norwegian composer Ola Gjeilo, the program will explore both sacred and secular texts.

The Chicago Artists Ensemble will perform a tender set of songs by famed modern composer Eric Whitacre. The Chorale will also present songs accompanied by the magnificent Lyon and Healy Pipe Organ at St. Vincent de Paul Parish. The program will culminate with Charles Stanford's Nunc dimittis, featuring Chicago's own Larry Adams as the bass soloist.

The Frost Variations

THE FROST VARIATIONS will feature Frostiana: Seven Country Songs, composed in 1959 by famed composer Randall Thompson. The piece richly musicalizes the poetry of Robert Frost and has become a celebrated set of choral songs. The Chicago Artists Ensemble will honor Randall Thompson by singing his setting of Alleluia - another famed piece of choral music with rich harmonic intricacies that will stir your soul.

The second half of THE FROST VARIATIONS will feature the lighter side of the "frosty season," including many familiar holiday songs originally performed by Peter, Paul and Mary, The Real Group, Pentatonix, and more! Please join us on December 8th as we welcome the holiday season with an eclectic program of all things FROST.
