    Give Ear to Thy People: Choral Music from the Jewish Tradition

    Music with Jewish roots from all over the world. A plaintive folk melody from Yemen; a jazz riff from the 20th century; strands of a song woven together in Spain during the Golden Age of Jewish learning, poetry and the arts: wherever it is found in the world, Jewish music draws on its own tradition, a sound intermingling the sacred and secular, making the ancient contemporary and the contemporary timeless.

    Music with Jewish roots from all over the world. A plaintive folk melody from Yemen; a jazz riff from the 20th century; strands of a song woven together in Spain during the Golden Age of Jewish learning, poetry and the arts: wherever it is found in the world, Jewish music draws on its own tradition, a sound intermingling the sacred and secular, making the ancient contemporary and the contemporary timeless. Fragments of its distinctive modes weave through the melodies, expressing and echoing the long history of the Jewish people. Paths of Stone and Water, world premiere written for Musica Sacra by Osnat Netzer, Israeli composer and pianist. Music by contemporary composers Yehudi Wyner and Noam Elkies; Aaron Copland's In the Beginning. Yiddish choral music from the early 20th century; other selections from the Jewish diaspora. Post- concert reception for all audience members.

      Musica Sacra continues to amaze and delight us. We've been going for about 4/5 years. The combination of a wide variety of programs and quality of performance is outstanding.
