Four World Premieres by Bryan Christian (Of a Rose Sing We), Carson Cooman (Nowel: Owt of your slepe aryse), Adam Jacob Simon (Lullaby), and Timothy Takach (There is No Rose of Such Virtue) stand as contemporary pillars within a program of Medieval and Renaissance carols and plainsong. The diverse compositional language of these works ranges from dense microtonal clusters to neo-Americana hymnody, shedding new light on Middle English verse. Also on the program are early carols, motets, and plainsong on Latin and Middle English texts draw from a variety of 13-15th century sources, including the Selden Carol Book, Arundel Manuscript, the Worcester Antiphoner, and Notre Dame’s Magnus Liber. Additional contemporary works by Paul Chihara, Sungji Hong, and Andrew Smith complete the program. Weaving together texts of both the early and new repertoires, the program creates a narrative that centers on the perspective and experience of the mother, the virgin—Mary—a Rose “Of Such Virtue.”
