3 Program Notes A Heaven full of stars. The night sky has been a source of endless inspiration for composers through the centuries. The shades of evening light and dark the memories and emotions associated with the night, the significance of a star have all been creatively depicted through rhythm, melody and harmonic colors. We begin with the setting sun, and the echoes of the valley in the still night. The Swedish composer Hugo Alfvén was notable for music full of colorful, picturesque harmonic shading. From Brahms Four Songs Op.92, O Schöne Nacht evokes the lovely night in splendor glowing. Listen for the twinkling stars in the piano accompaniment. In Abendlied we sink into a tranquil sleep. The significance of light shines through the next selections. Light gently beams from a Hanukah candle. Representing the 16 th century, Thomas Tallis sets the Latin text O Light born of light. The foolish virgins are admonished to keep their lamps filled with oil in the spiritual setting by Andre Thomas. Remember is a hauntingly beautiful new composition by San Jose composer Brian Holmes, where a star is significant. Premiered last weekend by the San Francisco Choral Artists, Cantare is thrilled to share Remember with our audience. A choir favorite from last season was A Christmas Carol by American Norman Dello Joio. He so skillfully set the poetry of G. K. Chesterton, with the references to light and stars, that we had to include it again this year. O Brillante Estrella is an original composition on a traditional Puerto Rican Christmas nativity text. The style of the work is that of a villancico, a lively Spanish carol; the colorful harmonies, syncopated rhythms, and flamboyant accompaniment help to capture the Spanish and Latin-American spirit. Mendelssohn never finished his last oratorio, Christus, near the end of his life. The one chorus There Shall a Star does remain. Francis Poulenc s music is characterized by a distinct harmonic language and subtle rhythm, all evidenced in this short motet. Then William Dawson s exciting version of Behold the Star with the men and women echoing each other in its driving conclusion. It would not be the holiday season without one of John Rutter s utterly charming carols. Janice Gunderson
4 Texts Aftonen (Evening) Hugo Alfvén ( ) Still, still, the woods, radiant, the heavens, Dim, distant horns fill the air with their echo. Sunset aglow, soon disappears beneath the sea. Slowly, so slowly, it disappears beneath the sea. Through the mountains, through the valleys, Lingering, the echoes, the echoes sound. Johannes Brahms ( ) I. O Schöne Nacht (Oh Lovely Night) O schöne Nacht! Oh lovely night! Am Himmel märchenhaft erglänzt der Mond in seiner ganzen Pracht; Um ihn der kleinen Sterne liebliche Genossenschaft. O schöne Nacht! Es schimmert hell der Tau am grünen Halm; Mit Macht im Fliederbusche schlägt die Nachtigall. Der Knabe schleicht zu seiner Liebsten sacht. O schöne Nacht! In heaven above the moon shines bright, in splendor glowing through the night. The stars in happy laughter shimmer sweetly by her side, Oh lovely night! The dewy grass aglow, a dazzling sight! With might in lilac bushes chirps the nightingale, that all is right; The lover comes upon his love so soft Oh lovely night!
5 II. Abendlied (Evening Song) Friedlich bekämpfen Nacht sich und Tag; Wie das zu dämpfen, wie das zu lösen vermag. Der mich bedrückte, schläfst du schon, Schmerz? Was mich beglückte, sage, was wars doch, mein Herz? Freude wie Kummer, fühl ich zerrann, Aber den Schlummer führten sie leise heran. Und im Entschweben, immer empor, Kommt mir das Leben ganz wie ein Schlummerlied vor. Peacefully night and day quarrel with each other; How can that be muffled, how can that be resolved! That which weighed on my mind, do you already sleep, pain? That which made me happy, tell me, what was it, my heart? Joy as well as pain, I feel, melted away, But they led slumber quietly on. And in floating away, always upwards, Life seems to me to be just like a lullaby. Beams of Gentle Light Robert Holmes ( ) Beams of gentle light, Beams of gentle light, Little taper burning bright Make us thankful, Make us joyful, On this festive Hanukah night. O Nata Lux Thomas Tallis ( ) Let us sing a song of gladness, Hearts full of love we bring, Allelujah, Allelujah, Allelujah, Now we sing! O nata lux de lumine, Jesu redemptor saeculi, Dignare clemens supplicum Laudes precesque sumere. Qui carne quondam contegi Dignatus es pro perditis. Nos membra confer effici, Tui beati corporis. O Light born of Light, Jesus, redeemer of the world, With loving-kindness deign to receive Suppliant praise and prayer. Thou who once deigned to be clothed in flesh For the sake of the lost, Grant us to be members Of thy blessed body.
6 Keep your lamps! Andre Thomas (b. 1952) Keep your lamps trimmed and burning, The time is drawing nigh. Children, don't get weary, 'Til your work is done. Christian journey soon be over, The time is drawing nigh. Remember Brian Holmes (b. 1946) Words by Susan Cooper (b. 1935) There was snow do you remember? It was many years ago and we were young, And a star moved through the sky... The air was cold, And over the hill came voices, faint and high; And we sang too, there by the fire-- I can hear the laughter still All together, giving, glad And never forgetting why. That was a time, when we were young And the world's bright star came by... Tell me, tell me do you remember? It was many years ago But you still may hear the singing if you try. A Christmas Carol Norman Dello Joio ( ) Words: G. K. Chesterton ( ) The Christ-child lay on Mary's lap, His hair was like a light. (O weary, weary were the world, But here is all aright.) The Christ-child lay on Mary's breast, His hair was like a star. (O stern and cunning are the kings, But here the true hearts are.)
7 The Christ-child lay on Mary's The Christ-child stood at Mary's heart, O, His hair was like a fire. knee, His hair was like a crown. (Weary, weary is the world, And all the flowers looked up But here the world's desire.) at Him, And all the stars looked down. O Brillante Estrella (O beautiful star) Mark Sirett (b. 1952) (Puerto Rican Christmas nativity text) De tierra lejana Venimos a verte, Nos sirve de guía La Estrella de Oriente. O brillante estrella que anuncias la aurora No nos falte nunca tu luz bienhechora. Gloria en las alturas, al Hijo de Dios, Gloria en las alturas, y en la tierra amor. Al recién nacido que es Rey de los reyes, Oro le regalo para ornar sus sienes. Como es Dios el Niño le regalo incienso, Perfume con alma que sube hasta el cielo. From a distant home we seek the Savior, We use to guide us the Eastern Star. O beautiful star that tells us of the dawn Never cease to shine Heaven's wondrous light! Glory in the highest to the Son of God Glory in the highest and peace on earth. To the new-born Babe, glowing gold I bring. A token of His power to reign in glory above. To God's own child a token of perfume I bring frankincense that rises to heaven. Al Niño del cielo que bajó a la tierra, Le regalo mirra que inspira tristeza. To the child of heaven bitter myrrh I have, As a refection of the pain he will bear. Intermission
8 There Shall a Star from Jacob Come Forth Felix Mendelssohn ( ) There shall a Star from Jacob come forth, And a scepter from Israel rise up. And dash in pieces princes and nations. How brightly shines the Morning Star With sudden radiance from afar, With light and comfort glowing! Thy Word, Jesus, Inly feeds us, Truly leads us, Life bestowing. Praise, oh praise, such love o'er flowing. Videntes Stellam (Beholding the star) Francis Poulenc ( ) Videntes stellam, Magi gavisi sunt gaudio magno: Et intrantes domum obtulerunt Domino aurum, thus et myrrham. Videntes stellam. Beholding the star, With joy the Wise Men came and with great gladness, And they entered in the house and there offered to the Lord gold and myrrh and incense. Beholding the star. Behold the Star William L. Dawson ( ) Behold the star! Behold the star up yonder! Behold the star of Bethlehem. There was no room found in the Inn, It is the star of Bethlehem. For Him who was born free from sin, It is the star of Bethlehem. The wise men came from the East, It is the star of Bethlehem..
9 To worship Him, the Prince of Peace, It is the star of Bethlehem. A song broke forth upon the night, It is the star of Bethlehem. It is the star of Bethlehem, Peace, peace on earth, goodwill to men, It is the star of Bethlehem. Behold the star! Behold the star up yonder! Allelujah, behold the star! Behold the star of Bethlehem. Star Carol John Rutter (b. 1945) Sing this night, for a boy is born in Bethlehem, Christ our Lord in a lowly manger lies; Bring your gifts, come and worship at his cradle, Hurry to Bethlehem and see the son of Mary! See his star shining bright In the sky this Christmas Night! Follow me joyfully; Hurry to Bethlehem and see the son of Mary! Angels bright, come from heaven s highest glory, Bear the news with its message of good cheer: Sing, rejoice, for a King is come to save us, Hurry to Bethlehem and see the son of Mary! See, he lies in his mother's tender keeping; Jesus Christ in her loving arms asleep, Shepherds poor, come to worship and adore him, Offer their humble gifts before the son of Mary. Let us all pay our homage at the manger, Sing his praise on this joyful Christmas Night; Christ is come, bringing promise of salvation; Hurry to Bethlehem and see the son of Mary!
10 Three Nocturnes Dan Forrest (b. 1978) Composer s Note: A commission for a piece for chorus and percussion ensemble came at a perfect time for me, when I had been marveling at the night skies on the plains of Kansas. I chose three texts about stars which were penned by different authors in diverse styles, but which all expressed a sense of wonder at the night sky. The first movement, Stars, opens up sonic space as a way to paint the expanse of the heavens. A mysterious and almost exotic introduction gives way to a burst of color and dynamic, as the stars appear over the treetops. A contrasting middle section of the poem provides opportunity for a fiery B section, before a return to the opening moods leaves us alone in that same sonic space. The second movement, Lightly stepped a yellow star, paints its wonderful text with staccato singing and an additive contrapuntal texture. Again, a middle section provides contrast; but this time, the contrast is velvety and ethereal, with hints of the energetic first section popping up between phrases. The one-word punchline of the poem, punctual, is then revealed. Several hints of this temporal element are present in the piece- from the cogs and gears clockwork texture to a subtle hint of Big Ben! The third movement,...thou motive of the stars, is the most majestic and declamatory of the set, building to the overwhelming chorale-style setting of the title line. Near the end, the mysterious silence of the opening bars of the whole set returns, and the entire set ends with the stars theme and the sense of space from the first I. Stars Words: Sara Teasdale ( ) Alone in the night On a dark hill With pines around me Spicy and still, And a heaven full of stars Over my head, White and topaz And misty red; Myriads with beating Hearts of fire That aeons Cannot vex or tire; Up the dome of heaven Like a great hill, I watch them marching Stately and still, And I know that I Am honored to be Witness Of so much majesty.
11 II. Lightly Stepped a Yellow Star Words: Emily Dickinson ( ) Lightly stepped a yellow star To its lofty place, Loosed the Moon her silver hat From her lustral face. All of evening softly lit As an Astral Hall - Father, I observed to Heaven, You are punctual. III. Thou Motive of the Stars Words: Walt Whitman ( ) O, vast Rondure, swimming in space! Covered all over with visible power and beauty! Alternate light and day, and the teeming, spiritual darkness; Unspeakable high processions of sun and moon and countless stars above; O thou transcendent! Light of the light! Shedding forth universes, thou centre of them! Thou mightier centre of the true, the good, the loving! Thou moral spiritual fountain! Affection s source! Thou reservoir! Thou pulse! Thou motive of the stars, suns, systems, that circling, move, in order, safe, harmonious, Across the shapeless vastnesses of space.
