Passionate Voices of the Upper Cape

2017/2018 Season Concerts

Copyright 2018 The Falmouth Chorale, Inc. All rights reserved. 
The Falmouth Chorale, led by Artistic Director John Yankee, presents In Paradisum: “heavenly” selections from 19th and 20th century composers including Daniel Pinkham’s Wedding Cantata, Psalm 42 (As the Hart Longs) by Felix Mendelssohn, and Gabriel Fauré’s Requiem. The Chorale and its Chamber Singers will be joined by soprano Joan Kirchner, baritone Philip Lima and chamber orchestra.

The Fauré Requiem, one of the most beloved works in the choral repertory, is notable for its calm and gentle treatment of the end of life—creating a work of transcendent beauty. For this concert, it is grouped with Pinkham’s popular cantata that uses texts from the Song of Solomon and a variety of musical textures to celebrate the many moods of love. Rounding out the program is Mendelssohn's 42nd Psalm, performed in English. The composer cites this work as his “very best sacred composition."

Saturday, March 10, 4:00 pm, and Sunday, March 11, 3:00 pm; pre-concert lecture with John Murelle 45 minutes prior to each concert.

Simon Center for the Arts, Falmouth Academy, 7 Highfield Drive, Falmouth
