The Lubbock Chorale's Fall Masterworks: Celebrating Women Composers, Past & Present @ Hemmle Recital Hall

In his poem, “Anthem for St. Cecilia’s Day,” the great 20th-century poet W.H. Auden wrote, “Blessed Cecilia, appear in visions to all musicians, appear and inspire: Translated Daughter, come down and startle composing mortals with immortal fire.” Despite the symbolic role that Cecilia plays as patron saint of music, female composers are dramatically underrepresented on most choral programs and recordings. The Lubbock Chorale’s season-opening concert seeks to engage this lacuna by performing selections from the long history of creativity by women writers and musicians. From the Medieval mysticism of Hildegard of Bingen, to masters such as Fanny Hensel, Clara Schumann, Lili Boulanger, Alice Parker, Eleanor Daley, and Gwyneth Walker, audiences will enjoy a vibrantly rich mosaic of choral music. Guest soloists and instrumentalists will join the Chorale for this enriching evening.
