Huntingdon choirs perform love songs for spring concert
Montgomery, Ala.—The Huntingdon College Concert Choir and Huntingdon Harmony, the College jazz choir, will perform a variety of love songs in "It's All About Love," their Spring Choral Concert, Sunday, April 15, at 3:00 p.m. in the College's Ligon Chapel, inside Flowers Hall. The concert is free and the public is invited to attend.
Songs about love and marriage will include two settings of "Set Me As A Seal" by contemporary composers Rene Clausen and Richard Nance, and two selections from the Liebeslieder Waltzes by Johannes Brahms. The Huntingdon Concert Choir will sing a 16th century English Madrigal, "My Bonnie Lass She Smileth," by Thomas Morley, followed by Huntingdon Harmony's rendition of the 20th century parody, "My Bonnie Lass She Smelleth," by PDQ Bach. A stirring Jonathan Quick arrangement of "Loch Lomond" and the soothing sounds of Eric Whitacre's "Seal Lullaby" will conclude an afternoon of love songs. The Huntingdon choirs are under the direction of Department of Music Chair Gene J. Davis and Dr. Jennifer Canfield, assistant professor of music.
