Double-Takes: One Text, Two Perspectives

We contrast composers’ settings of selected texts to explore their differing approaches to interpreting the language and evoking its meaning in sound.

You’ll hear revealing comparisons of Dixit Dominus by Handel and Monteverdi, both set for chorus, soloists, and strings, as well as works by composers old and new: Drop Down Ye Heavens by Judith Weir and Josef Rheinberger; Ubi Caritas by Maurice Duruflé and Ola Gjeilo; and Like as the Hart by Palestrina and Herbert Howells.
