J. S. BACH Gott, Der Herr, ist Sonn und Schild, BWV 79 AMY BEACH The Canticle of the Sun, Op. 123 FRANCIS POULENC Stabat Mater
From the sorrows of death to the glory of paradise, Poulenc's powerful and moving Stabat Mater brings to life the agony of the crucifixion, as well as the profound lament of Mary, the mother of Christ, at the foot of the cross. Completing the program will be two magnificient shorter works, both extolling the beneficent virtues of our Brother, the Sun.
