|The repertoire, which has a range that goes from Middle Ages to contemporary music, shows the studies fields the choir is interested in. They converge over some themes, everyone of these is supposed to be an idea that, in a concert, can lead the attention and, at the same time, it could strengthen and enhance the messages and the emotions only music can inspire.
So, everyone of the following themes answers to a monographic program proposal. For each one of these we give you a description, authors, approximate duration and the eventual notice.
The choice of a date it’s always to fix in agree with the choir, which is usually available since the second week of September to the end of June, except for special cases.
Hildegard von Bingen: the Soul’s Ecstasy
The body is truly the garment of the soul, which has a living voice; for that reason it is fitting that the body, simultaneously with the soul, repeatedly sings praises to God through the voice.
For Hildegard von Bingen, music was the vehicle that facilitated union between God and humankind, and song represented one of the highest and most joyful expressions of prayer.
Gaudium et Virtus
Over the centuries, the Virtues have been artistically interpreted not only in music but in representational art and literature as well. Here, the Chorus performs a section (specifically, the second scene of the second act) of Hildegard von Bingen’s Ordo Virtutum, the first morality play to reach us intact.
