Tyler Civic Chorale presents Mass Appeal
“Our upcoming program draws upon the rich heritage of music written for the Christian celebration of the Mass."
TYLER For the third concert of its 2011/2012 season, the Tyler Civic Chorale draws upon the rich literature of choral masses written for the Roman Catholic, Russian Orthodox, and Greek Orthodox churches. The composers or arrangers include Felice Anerio, Anatoly Liadov, Tomas Luis de Victoria, and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
The concert will be sung twice, first at 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, March 24, and again at 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, March 25. The site is the sanctuary of Christ Church Episcopal at 118 Bois d’Arc in Tyler. Tickets are $15 for adults and $5 for students, available at the door or from choristers.
Donald Duncan, the Chorale’s artistic director, says, “Our upcoming program draws upon the rich heritage of music written for the Christian celebration of the Mass. The repertoire includes two mass settings of contrasting styles as well as accompanying motets and Marian anthems. Stylistically speaking, there is something for everyone in this program! The music is generally serene, deeply spiritual, and quite beautiful.”
