Ashes of Roses @ Church of Our Lady of Loretto Saint Mary’s College
Mar 5 @ 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm
Ashes of Roses @ Church of Our Lady of Loretto Saint Mary’s College | South Bend | Indiana | United States

South Bend Chamber Singers concert featuring:

A Requiem by Jocelyn Hagen
with works by
Morten Lauridsen
and other composers
with special guests
Saint Mary’s College Belles Voix

 

This concert will feature the world premiere of Minnesota-based composed Jocelyn Hagen’s requiem, Ashes of Roses, in a new orchestration.  Originally scored for SATB chorus, soprano, mezzo-soprano, and baritone soloists, soprano saxophone soloist, and large orchestra, Jocelyn is re-scoring the work for performance with accompaniment of organ and several instruments, making it more possible for small ensembles like the South Bend Chamber Singers to perform. The work gets its name from Elaine Goodale Eastman’s poem “Ashes of Roses,” which is incorporated into the traditional Latin text of the requiem mass as the 4th movement and is scored for 4-part women’s voices. The Saint Mary’s College Belles Voix will join the treble voices of the SBCS for this movement. Hagen also incorporates a text from I Corinthians in the Agnus Dei, sung by the baritone soloist.

 

For the other half of our program, we will perform American composer Morten Lauridsen’s cycle of choral pieces, Les Chansons des Roses. The SMC Belles Voix will also perform several pieces alone.

 

This concert sponsored in part by The Community Foundation of St. Joseph County’s ArtsEverywhere Initiative.
