Music Report

My reason for attending the concert was to support some of my fellow colleagues who had invited me to see the concert, and I was not disappointed. Sir Edward Elgar's piece, The Dance, was a delightful piece. The piece began with the piano playing a quaint line of jumps which is immediately taken over by the women of the ensemble. When the women voices come in the feel of this “dance” comes alive as the meter is clearly established as a simple simple, and this is because their melodic lines a very rhythmic and hardly stay still just like a real person would during a dance. Then the male timbre comes into the mix when the repeat of the opening theme occurs and at this point there are harmonies present but the overall texture is monophonic. Then there is a modulation into another tonal center which is emphasized by the polyphony that begins to occur, the male voices singing sort dance like note, while the female voices sing sustained notes on the top, and the voices join up on the same melody to lead into the climax of this section. In the middle of the piece there is a more smoother, calmer melody, still monophonic with the interplay occurring among the harmonies which clearly cut through with the distinction of colors from the lower and higher voices. Towards the ending of the piece there is a restatement of the playful theme between the males and females, giving off the impression of a young couple flirting or joking around while they are spinning around a ball room. Throughout the entire song the piano was accompanying the concert choir, providing rhythms and harmonies similar to a waltz: light, dainty but firm, syncopation, and also helped prepare listeners with the modulation changes.
The second piece I enjoyed was Morten Lauridsen's piece, Ubi Caritas et Amor. The piece featured the chamber ensemble which was a bit smaller than the opening concert choir ensemble. It began with the main theme being sung in the tenor voices of the group, which was a legato and monophonic melody chant like in its sound because of its syllabic pattern. After the tenor introduction, the rest of the ensemble joins in with more harmonic texture and melodic interplay. The sopranos take the main theme which again resounds in the tenors and then there is a slight alteration to the theme with voices participating in elides with the main theme going from lowest to highest with voices building up to a minor climax in this part of the piece. About the midpoint of the piece, the words change and a new theme is presented with the entire choir singing this one melody. This second theme was more rhythmic than the first and it is possible to here more harmonic interplay with the voices also taking on slightly polyphonic lines. The third theme showcased more of the lower tenors and basses with a new theme that sounded like bells ringing because of the rhythmic pattern and color the singers displayed for those few lines. The coda of the piece was filled with melismatic...
