LOOKING AT MAY
Sat May 5th 8pm Ste Anne Singers concert: Nuit étoilée. « Nuit étoilée » celebrates the mix of human emotions evoked by the night sky, and by extension, our varied notions of heaven. Our programme includes Don Macdonald’s “Last Night of Stars”, “Calme des nuits “ by Saint-Saëns, “Sleep” by Eric Whitacre, and “Stars” by Latvian composer Eriks Esenvalds. This latter piece is accompanied by tuned water glasses, which evoke the music of the spheres with their mesmerizing sound. We will also perform a beautiful setting of Shakespeare’s “How Sweet the Moonlight” by SAS tenor Martin Fairbank. For as long as history has been recorded, humans have invested the heavens with our notion of the sacred and the possibility of an afterlife. “Pie Jesu » (Michael McGlynn), « Ave Generosa » (Ola Gjeilo) and « All Creatures of Our God and King » (Anders Edenroth) are all exquisite songs addressed to the divine. Vienna Teng’s “Hymn to Acxiom”, on the other hand, is an ironic – and amusing – look at our worship of technology and where it may be leading us. “Moon River” (Johnny Mercer), “Le soleil et la lune” (Charles Trenet) and “Le ciel se marie avec la mer” (Jacques Blanchet) will illuminate the lighter side of our fascination with the heavens. Finally, for the pure fun of it, « Nyon Nyon » is, in the words of composer Jacob Runestad, “an exploration of the effects that one can produce with the human voice”. Click here to see the poster.
