Voix de Femmes presents 'Mary Speaks'
Tuesday, November 28, 7:30 pm - Riderwood Chapel only
In their celebrations of the Virgin Mary, composers have shown an abiding preference for women’s voices. Their texts vary in focus from a Lowly Maiden and the Bearer of God to the Rose of Sharon and a Virgin Most Pure.
Voix de Femmes Chamber choir will present selected gems from this vast compositional treasure; included will be :Mary Speaks", the setting of a text by Madeleine L’Engle giving voice to Mary’s experience: “You who hold the world in your embrace, I carried you.
The singers are delighted to be accompanied by Dr. Grace Cho.
