An Ode to Spring

May19, 2019
National Presbyterian Church
Washington, D.C.

The City Choir of Washington’s twelfth season concludes with a jubilant ode to spring. The concert opens with Purcell’s buoyant and marvelous Come, Ye Sons of Art, followed by Mozart’s shimmering and exuberant Regina Coeli, K. 276. The concert concludes with the Kyrie and Gloria from Bach’s legendary Mass in B minor. These movements were originally written as an independent mass (the Missa of 1733). In the words of Maestro Shafer, “We need this music now, more than ever.”
