Conducted by David Neiweem

May is Marian Month, dedicated by Christians to the Virgin Mary. In this concert, we perform pieces from many of the generations that have called her blessed.

We start with the plainchant Gregorian Chants and Hildegard von Bingen. The Heinrich Schütz Magnificat is a warm and loving Renaissance setting of the well-known words.

We stop briefly in the Romantic era with Bruckner's short Ave Maria and Rachmaninoff's lush Bogoroditsye Dyevo (Virgin Maid, rejoice).

Gorecki's Totus tuus cries out its plea to Mary, but Biebl's Ave Maria is a sweet blessing.

The final work is by our very own David Neiweem, very definitely 21st century.
