Hey All, Thought I’d give you a head’s up on what to expect at our concert on May 22 (7:30 pm) @ Bethany Reformed Church. I had a very productive day with composer Ryan Block, and gained some cool insights into his arrangement of Danny Boy. I think you all will enjoy this beautiful song.
You’ll notice that there is a great variety to the repertoire. That’s because I like variety! It is the spice of life, after all. You will hear everything from medieval music to American and English folksong to jazz. I think you’ll thoroughly enjoy the arrangement of Blue Moon by Jonny Priano. Without further ado, here it is:
Gloria from Messe de Nostre Dame (Guillaume Machaut)
Lamentatio sanctae matris ecclesiae Constantinopolitanae (Guillaume Dufay)
Lobe den Herren (arr. Hugo Distler)
Hark, I Hear the Harps Eternal (arr. Alice Parker)
My Bonny Lass, She Smileth (Thomas Morley)
My Sweetheart’s Like Venus (arr. Gustav Holst)
Danny Boy (arr. Ryan Block)
Blue Moon (arr. Jonny Priano)
On a completely unrelated note, I’m still trying to figure out a name for this ensemble. If you have any ideas, please PM or contact me here. I would greatly appreciate it!!!!
