As part of its commitment to presenting new and lesser-known choral music of great quality, the GMChorale presents the local premiere of New Every Morning, a multi-movement choral work by Connecticut composer Peter Niedmann. This setting of joyful texts from two great English churchmen-poets and two Psalms is a rich textual and musical tapestry that is by turns comforting, celebratory, and uplifting. The music dances with pronounced rhythmic underpinnings and shifting meters, sublime harmonies and a cappella sections, and a virtuosic accompaniment that sparkles and enlivens the choral writing. The program also includes evocative choral music by John Rutter, David Conte, Dan Forrest, and James Mulholland. Alan Conway accompanies from the piano.
There will be a pre-concert talk beginning at 3:15 p.m.
