Directed by Thomas Edward Morgan

Founder Thomas Edward Morgan directs his talented, Boulder-based, mixed-voice ensemble in a program of classical a cappella religious pieces. These 12 songs begin with Hildegard of Bingen's (1098-1179) haunting "O viridissima virga," Carlo Gesualdo's (1561-1613) "Tristis est anima mea," and Robert Pearsall's (1795-1856) soaring "Lay a Garland." Following are contemporary works by Arvo Part, "Magnificat," Herbert Howells' beautiful 6-part "Requiem" and two wonderful pieces by John Tavener, "Ikon of St. Cuthbert of Lindisfarne" and "Song for Athene." Ars Nova has built their fine national and international reputation on performing beautiful, difficult Choral works like these, flawlessly!
