Chorale
West Park, NY: Holy Cross Monastery: Kairos: A Consort of Singers, under the direction of Dr. Edward Lundergan. The program, titled "Seasons," will celebrate and explore the many glories of the seasons as they change: autumn gives way to winter, spring makes room for summer, etc. The concert will be performed in the intimate and acoustically superb chapel of the Holy Cross Monastery, 1615 Route 9W, West Park, N.Y. The crisp joys of fall, the melancholy stillness of winter, and the yearning for those last few moments of summer before the weather cools... All these will be celebrated. The world-premiere arrangement of a piece by Craig M. Fryer observes the turning of the year through all four seasons. Part songs by Brahms and Mendelssohn will usher in the fall, along with "Try to Remember," a familiar and well-loved tune from the world's longest-running musical, The Fantasticks. Winter will be both celebrated and chided, with a folk-song arrangement by the German composer Robert Franz; a part-song by Claude Debussy that upbraids winter for being so very cold; and panegyrics to night and snow and cold weather by Francis Poulenc and by the 20th-century English composer Herbert Howell. Spring will be welcomed in songs by 16th-century composers Claudio Monteverdi and Claude Le Jeune. And summer is praised in a sweet motet by the 20th century British composer Benjamin Britten. 3 pm. It is suggested that audience members arrive at the venue at least 20 minutes before the performance to secure seating. 845-256-9114  www.kairosconsort.org
