Trinity

Our December concert, Little Tree, joyfully ushered in the winter season with works like Eatnemen Vuelie (Song of the Earth), a traditional Sami yoik (famously featured in Disney’s Frozen) by Frode Fjellheim and arranged for mixed chorus and percussion by Emily Crocker, Julian Wachner’s exhilarating reimagining of the holiday carols Hark! The Herald Angels Sing and Angels we have Heard on High for mixed chorus and organ, and Joshua Jacobson’s setting of Azamer bishvokhin, based on text composed by Rabbi Isaac Luria celebrating spiritual transcendence, performed completely in Aramaic. Stephen Heitzeg’s little tree, a tender setting of e.e. cummings poetry for mixed chorus and harp, provides the title of our winter program, and seeks to answer a child’s question of an evergreen tree - ‘who found you in the green forest and were you sorry to come away?’
