Vocal Arts Ensemble

 

continued

The ensemble has not essayed the main music on the program in the past, but on the evidence of their previous performances I expect them to transform the chancel of St. Andrew's into the stage celestial. Certainly, the music is celestial. Martin's Mass sets the Ordinary of the Roman liturgy to music at once severe and sublime, full of modal melodies and ecstatic harmonies and the pure, clear sound of souls singing. The Poulenc motets are suave, sophisticated, and very sexy. And although the select assortment of noels, carols, and glees might not be everyone's cup of spiritual tea, the Vocal Arts Ensemble's incandescent sonorities will no doubt sweeten the spiritual pot.    (end of article)
