Our season opener celebrates the resilience of our community in times of adversity. Leonard Bernstein’s On the Town, written during the darkest days of World War II, depicts an exuberant romp through New York City. The very title of Missy Mazzoli’s Sinfonia comes from the ancient Greek words for “together” and “sound”—the essence of reuniting through music. The program opens with the New York City premiere of Valerie Coleman’s Seven O’Clock Shout, a tribute to the frontline workers who have sustained us through the pandemic.

(Gl)Oriana - Tunes of Tudor Tumult

Orlando Chamber Choir
Lucy Goddard, director

Byrd: Vigilate
Byrd: O Lord, make thy servant Elizabeth our Queen
Byrd: Quis est homo
Byrd: Laudibus in sanctis
East: Hence stars too dim of light
Tallis: several Tunes for Archbishop Parker's Psalter
Tallis: When Jesus went into Simon's house
Tallis: Salvator mundi
Tallis: In jejunio et fletu
Tallis: O nata lux
Weelkes: As Vesta was
Wilbye: The Lady Oriana
Andrew: Archbishop Parker's Psalme 150


Orlando Chamber Choir's autumn concert features a breath-taking blend of English choral works from turbulent late-Tudor times. The ascension of Anglican Queen Elizabeth I drove Catholicism underground, compelling the country's prime composer, Thomas Tallis, to tactfully transcribe some of his music for compliance with protestant practice. He and his pupil William Byrd published stunning high-Anglican settings like Salvator mundi and O nata lux but continued to celebrate their own conviction in covert Catholic compositions. These latter works touched on themes of religious treason – like the warning against Anglican spies whispered in Vigilate and the insistence in Quis est homo that salvation is restricted to the religiously righteous.

Not only credence required careful weighing, words called for caution too. Controversially to some, Queen Elizabeth had Archbishop Parker translate the psalms into English, reverently tuned by Thomas Tallis and (much later) set with rowdy joy by Kerry Andrew. Even seemingly innocent secular poetry could be treacherously contentious. The madrigal collection "The Triumphs of Oriana", in which the country's most prominent composers celebrated Queen Elizabeth, is rumoured to have first been dedicated to Anne of Denmark, would-be Catholic Queen of England had the so-called Essex Rebellion succeeded. When we perform John Wilbye's flattering The Lady Oriana and Thomas Weelkes' joyful As Vesta was, you may wonder whom they really woo…

The concert's glorious repertoire conveys a comforting message: in periods of religious unrest and political pandemonium, when language is contested and there's venom in mere verse, music resounds with even more depth and beauty.

Come and listen to our tunes of Tudor tumult!

Considering Matthew Shepard

Considering Matthew Shepard is Craig Hella Johnson’s three-part fusion oratorio about Matthew Shepard, a young, gay student who was kidnapped, severely beaten, tied to a fence, and left to die. Co-directed by WQXR’s Elliott Forrest and Rod Casper, the piece has been hailed as “stunning”, “complex”, “poignant” and “audacious”, with the story illustrated by a variety of musical styles seamlessly woven into a unified whole and a wide range of poetic and soulful texts by poets, Matthew’s journal entries, writings by his parents, and newspaper reports.
