In Terra Pax

Post Image 1

Lyrica opens the season with the serene and impressionistic In Terra Pax by twentieth century British composer, Gerald Finzi. Written just two years before Finzi’s death in 1956, this composition skillfully juxtaposes poetry of Robert Bridges with the familiar Christmas passage from St. Luke. In Terra Pax is a work of intense emotion, radiant beauty, and optimism and the familiar narrative of the Christmas story is woven into this miniature masterpiece. Stunning new works by Norwegian composer, Ola Gjeilo, including The Rose, Ecce Novum, and Tundra will refresh the spirit as the Christmas season is welcomed.

Lyrica continues to explore the magnificent choral works of Josef Rheinberger with the centerpiece of this program, the Missa Misericordias Domini, opus 192 leading up to Holy Week. Josef Gabriel Rheinberger was a native of Liechtenstein and emerged as a child prodigy by the age of five. He was only seven when he became the organist at the town church (with a special device created to allow his feet to reach the pedals), a post he held until he entered the Munich Conservatory at age twelve. As a composer, Josef Rheinberger was remarkable for his “power of invention, masterful technique, and a noble, solid style.” Compositions by Pablo Casals, Alice Parker, and Kim Andre Arnesen will complete this program.

The works of American singer-songwriter and record producer, Benjamin Scott Folds (“Ben Folds” born in 1966) will be explored together with contemporary popular songwriters who have focused on beautiful, wide-ranging melodies and poetic texts. Several songs by Folds, including The Luckiest, Magic, Selfless, Cold and Composed, and Still Fighting have been masterfully arranged as choral compositions. Additional works by lyricist and librettist Alan Jay Lerner and composer Frederick Loewe will round out the program. “And in a wide sea of eyes, I see one pair that I recognize; And I know…that I am, I am, I am, the luckiest.”
