Bendicamus Domino
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
Hugo Wolf
Richard Strauss
Max Reger,
Carl Orff
Darius Milhaud
Francis Poulenc

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!
