Bethany Lutheran Church, Denver

JoAnn Gudvangen-Brown, accompanist
Dr. Michael Pohlenz, conductor

This final Voces Cordis concert will feature a number of founder and conductor Dr. Michael Pohlenz's "bucket list" favorites, beginning with the concert opener Pater Noster, a double-choir motet by Jacob Handl. The stirring Introit and Kyrie from Maurice Duruflé's Requiem will follow, setting a serene mood for Rachmaninoff's Bogoroditse Devo from his All-Night Vigil. Music by Haydn, Handel and Brahms will follow, in preparation for Randall Thompson's lofty Choose Something Like a Star, from which the concert theme, "Use Language We Can Comprehend," is taken. Ultimately, the concert will close with Handel's Worthy Is the Lamb, music fit to not only close history's greatest oratorio but also to close the books on Voces Cordis. A chamber orchestra of Denver's finest freelance musicians, hired with the help of union contractor Phyllis Carlson, will accompany many of the selections of this final performance. Because of the gracious generosity of a private donor, there will be no admission charge.
