Una Voce Chamber Choir "Evensong"
Join the Una Voce Chamber Choir as they present music by contemporary composers in their expressions of ancient texts often sung in traditional Anglican orders of worship.
Mark your calendar for " Evensong" on Saturday, January 25 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, January 26 at 2.30 p.m. at the Unitarian Universalist Church, 1 Middle Street, Brunswick, Maine.
"Evensong," adapted from the traditional Anglican service of prayers and praise at days end, presents living composers who give new voices to timeless liturgies. Meditations are sung in prayer, in praise, in love both divine and human. A few highlights are the 16th Century poetry of St John of the Cross composed by Tarik ORegan (b. 1978), a chant-like Lords Prayer in ancient Aramaic (the language of Jesus) by Ilyas Iliya (b. 1963), St. Augustines 4th Century Evening Prayer for voices and jazz duo by Ola Gjeilo (b. 1978), and the Virgin Marys praise to God in Magnificat by Imant Raminsh (b.1943).
Founded in the fall of 2018, Una Voce Chamber Choir traces its origins to the critically acclaimed Vox Nova Chamber Choir, which concluded its ninth concert season in June, 2018. Directed by Virgil Bozeman IV, Una Voce Chamber Choir debuted to critical acclaim in its 2019 premiere season.
