Big Heart7 DEC 2019, SAT
The SYC Ensemble Singers
An afternoon of Advent music interspersed with poetry from the 11th century to the present.
As it concludes its 55th-anniversary celebration, the SYC Ensemble Singers ignites the spirit of anticipation for Christmas with Big Heart. Interspersing Advent music with poetry from the 11th century to the present, the concert encourages audiences to look inward and contemplate the solemn majesty of the season. The repertoire - which includes Hildegard of Bingen's medieval chant O Virtus Sapientiae, the ringing harmonies of Arvo Part's O Antiphons, and Morten Lauridsen's much-beloved O Magnum Mysterium -ruminates on the great saving love that we remember during Christmas.
