A Concert of Choral and Instrumental Music by Herbert Howells
Duke Chapel Evensong Singers
Duke Chapel's Evensong Singers present this concert comprising music by Herbert Howells, whose music occupies a significant place in Anglican church music. Howells cultivated an entirely individual voice in his choral and organ music as a student of prominent musicians, such as Charles Villiers Stanford, Hubert Parry, Charles Wood, and Walford Davies. This performance features Howells' "Requiem"--regarded by many as one of the greatest choral works of the twentieth century--together with anthems, carols, and organ music. The concert concludes with Howells' stirring setting of the "Te Deum" composed for the choir of King's College, Cambridge. Program: * Like as the hart * O pray for the peace of Jerusalem * Requiem * A Spotless Rose * Sing Lullaby * Te Deum "Collegium Regale" * Paean for Organ Free admission. Paid parking is available on a first-come-first-served in the Bryan Center Garage at 125 Science Drive. ADA parking is available in the surface lot at the same address. Following the concert, people attending are invited to a related performance: An instrumental ensemble presents J.S. Bach's "The Musical Offering" at 6:00 p.m. in the Divinity School's Goodson Chapel.
