The concert features Benjamin Britten’s Hymn to St. Cecilia and an encore performance of Velo Tormis’ dramatic and seldom-performed Curse Upon Iron, which the Chamber Singers performed at Harmonium's March concert "Why Do the Nations Rage". The concert is rounded out with an array of works from Josquin, Peter Schickele, Marenzio, Hatfield, and more. The 20-member Chamber Singers are a select subset of the acclaimed Harmonium Choral Society, conducted by Dr. Anne Matlack, who is celebrating her 25th anniversary as music director at Grace Church.
