The Boychoir of Ann Arbor

 

continued

program at Zion Lutheran Church in March, the Boychoir again sang with angelic voices. In a program containing works by Palestrina, Mendelssohn, and Rachmaninoff, the Boychoir sang with real and ardent devotion, praising the Lord with luminous voices in Mozart's sublime "Ave, verum corpus."

But in their performance at the Ann Arbor District Library in April, the Boychoir sang with the voices of mischievous angels, angels with gleams in their eyes and smiles on their lips. When they performed settings of Kipling, they sang about youthful innocence tinted with wistful experience. When they performed settings of Lewis Carroll, they sang of inspired nonsense colored with weird words and weirder neologisms. And when they did "Food, Glorious Food" from the Dickens adaptation Oliver, they displayed tangible and tasteful enthusiasm saturated with high spirits. Although they sing with the voices of angels, these angels are boys, and, when all is said and sung, boys just want to have fun.
