2017-2018 Concert Season

Psalmists and Seers: Chichester Psalms

Featuring Leonard Bernstein’s mini-masterpiece, the ebullient and moving Chichester Psalms, scored for organ, harp and percussion, and James Woodman’s luminous The Midwife’s Tale, a lush and gorgeous chronical of Christ’s birth, as told by Mary’s midwife. (Program performed in December 2017)

Time and Tide: Rhythms of the Sea

Inspired by the North Shore’s wild and beautiful coastline, Cantemus presents a concert of sea songs and spirituals. Enticing chanties by Jonathan Wilcox, Stephen Chatman's Time Pieces, endearing settings of Moon River and Deep River, poetic masterpieces, Dances of Time, by Bob Chilcott, and Randall Thompson's rarely performed ethereal Two Worlds.
