St. Bartholomew’s Choir Paolo Bordignon, conductor Alexander Pattavina, organ

“In a garden shady this holy lady With reverent cadence and subtle psalm ... Poured forth her song in perfect calm.”

W. H. Auden’s Hymn to St. Cecilia is as fresh, startling, and brilliant today as when he first penned the poem in 1940 at the request of his Brooklyn housemate, Benjamin Britten. The collaboration proved to be their last but the short masterpiece they produced is one of the best-loved a cappella choral works of the century. Join St. Bartholomew’s Choir for a concert whose subject is the celebration of music itself by two of its most inventive creators: Britten and Bach. The program will include Bach’s motets Singet dem Herrn ein neues Lied, BWV 225, and Der Geist hilft unser Schwachheit auf, BWV 226.
