Benjamin Britten: Ceremony of Carols

Thomas Beveridge: Welcome, Lord! - Advent Cantata

New Dominion Chorale will perform works by Benjamin Britten and Thomas Beveridge in a program entitled “Welcome, Yule!” on Sunday, December 7, 2014, at 4 p.m. The concert, a blend of old and new Christmas traditions, will take place at the Rachel M. Schlesinger Concert Hall and Arts Center on the Alexandria Campus of Northern Virginia Community College, 4915 East Campus Drive, Alexandria, Virginia.

Mr. Beveridge, the Chorale’s founder and artistic director, will conduct the performance that features his own Advent Cantata, “Welcome, Lord!” and “A Ceremony of Carols” by Britten.

New Dominion Chorale will be joined by special guest chorus, the Children’s Chorus of Washington, directed by Joan Gregoryk. Vocal soloists, all well known to Washington audiences, will be soprano Laura Strickling, mezzo-soprano Linda Maguire, tenors Issachah Savage and Jason Rylander, and bass David Brundage. The Rev. John Wimberly will be the narrator in “Welcome, Lord!”

Mr. Beveridge’s cantata, commissioned by Union Theological Seminary in New York City to commemorate its 150th anniversary, received its premiere in 1986. This will be the second performance, with a new ending. “Welcome, Lord!” is based on the first chapter of the Gospel according to St. Luke, which tells the story of the events leading up to the birth of Jesus: the Annunciation by the angel Gabriel to Elizabeth and Zechariah concerning the birth of their son, John (“the Baptist”), and to Mary, concerning the birth of her son, Jesus. The musical score, which employs an ensemble of solo instruments, includes many familiar chants and carols appropriate for the Advent season, including “O Come Emmanuel,” “Come, Holy Spirit,” “O Come, All Ye Faithful,” and a new setting of Mary’s song, “My Soul Magnifies the Lord” (The Magnificat).
