Join Coro Allegro for an inspiring program of Lenten mediations and songs of praise. Spiritual themes of anguish, penitence and forgiveness resonate in these moving choral works. Be transported by Poulenc's motets with their expressive melodies and spare, haunting harmonic language. Enjoy the deceptively simple pleasures of Brahms' charming set of choral lieder honoring the Virgin Mary in the style of old German folksongs. Finally, experience the passion of Dubois' cantata The Seven Last Words of Christ in all its intimate poignancy and the exciting cacophony of its drama.
