East Carolina University Chamber Singers

Director: Daniel Bara

 East Carolina University Chamber Singers

Mixed Choral Chorus from United States.

Because of the more demanding rehearsal and performance schedule, the 32-36 voice Chamber Singers invites only the most gifted and passionate choristers from ECU to be amongst its ranks. Designed to perform twentieth-century a cappella repertoire at a professional level, this ensemble also delves into the repertoire of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries on a biannual basis in order to present baroque masterworks using historically informed performance practices in collaboration with ECU's Early Music Ensemble. The televised performances of G. F. Handel's complete Messiah performed on original instruments in the spring of 2003 attracted impressive audiences and earned rave reviews. The Chamber Singers, most of whom are voice majors from within the School of Music, tour annually and received a standing ovation for their performance at the 2002 NC-ACDA conference in Greensboro, NC. The Chamber Singers will combine with the University Chorale and the ECU Symphony Orchestra to perform at the 2003 Fall NCMEA Conference in Winston-Salem.

East Carolina University Chamber Singers : Eternal Light

Review: The 45-strong, mixed-voice ECUCS, under the baton of multiple-award-winning Daniel Bara, is the most selective of four university choral ensembles at Greenville, NC's East Carolina University. The Singers have been invited to perform at numerous ACDA conventions and toured extensively in the United States. These 14 songs, with some accompaniment by Bassoon, Clarinet and Flute, showcase the marvelous choral tone of one of America's great university choirs. Some favorites are John Rutter's Hymn to the Creator of Light," Mark G. Sirett's "Veni, Sancte Spiritus," Howard Helvey's "O quam gloriosum," Egil Hovland's 4-part "Agnus Dei," the Spirituals "I've Been in the Storm So Long" and "Nobody Knows the Trouble I've Seen;" and Leo Sowerby's title tune. The wonderful vocals of this rich collection are enhanced by the beautiful acoustics of St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Greenville.

Songlist: Hymn to the Creator of Light, O Thou Great Power in Whom I Move, Veni Sancte Spiritus , Ave Maria , Cedit, Hyems (Be Gone, Winter!), O quam gloriosum, De profundis, Agnus Dei, Qui tollis peccata mundi, Miserere nobis, Dona nobis pacem, I've Been in the Storm So Long, Nobody knows the trouble I've seen, Eternal Light
