JOIN US TO EXPLORE the expressivity of the human voice with two works that conjure different emotions of “crying out” through song. First, one of Bach’s earliest cantatas, Aus der Tiefen rufe ich, Herr, zu dir (Psalm 130), captures the psalmist’s pleading and sorrowful cries for mercy and redemption. Next, A Breath of Ecstasy by John Michael Trotta features seven texts by Sara Teasdale. Set against a backdrop of oboe and strings, the choir’s breath fuels full-body, soaring exclamations of joy and transcendence you will not want to miss!
