Sacred Songs from the 19th and 20th Century
Benedicamus Domino – Let us praise the Lord: For centuries, composers have sought to set their hopes and their doubts to the Christian promise of salvation. amarcord presents a string of impressive examples from the 19th and the 20th century, as much disturbing as comforting.
Benedicamus Domino features works by
and Krysztof Penderecki.
Other programs available; please inquire to learn more.
Noted for their unique tone, breathtaking homogeneity, musical authenticity and a good dose of charm and humor, amarcord performs a vast and highly diverse repertoire, from medieval plainsong to madrigals and Renaissance masses, compositions and cycles of works of the European Romantic period and 20th century, and arrangements of a cappella folksongs collected from all over the world.
Enjoy a selection of recent performances below – beginning with a special amarcord holiday song and message!
