Early and Late Masters

For its final program of the season, Chorale presents the major works of two exceptionally influential composers. Separated by 300+ years, Palestrina and Thompson both established styles that are traceable through the many composers who followed them. These works are seldom heard in live performance and rarely, if ever, heard together. This concert spotlights the exquisite blend and expressivity of the choir, virtues that led The Chicago Tribune’s John Von Rhein to name Chorale’s tribute to Arvo Pärt the “Finest Choral Performance of 2015.”


 

I hadn’t heard the Chicago Chorale in years and was reminded of what a first-rate chorus this group of 62 mixed voices is, and how superbly disciplined and deeply expressive are their performances. – John von Rhein, chicagotribune.com, November 24, 2015
