Song recital: Soul Songs-A Gift of Spirit
January 28, 2012
On Saturday, January 28, 2012 at 8:00 pm, Mary Ricker and Scott Nicholas will present songs that come from the great song tradition that marries meaningful poetry to transcendent music. Among the works Ms. Ricker and Mr. Nicholas will offer are songs of German Romantic composers Schubert and Brahms, who were inspired by poetry about experiencing the spirit in nature; French composer Maurice Ravel, who set the text of the Kaddish, an ancient Jewish payer; American composer Samuel Barber who set poems from the Celtic mystical tradition; and Boston’s own John Harbison who set the passionate poetry of the Hindi mystic, Mirabai. Come and experience a special gift of spirit.
