Alleluia, Adorare

In this season of social distancing, I'm offering a series of virtual micro-concerts for anyone to enjoy. Every Wednesday, I’ll post one fine performance of notable music for women’s voices. The selections and performing groups will be varied and eclectic. Most will be in the 3-5 minute range. Each post will include an audio recording, brief notes, text & translation and, when practical, a PDF copy of the score in case you want to follow along.

Introduction

Our featured piece this week is a lovely performance of a recent work by Mitchell Covington (me!) This piece was written in early 2020 and is scored for SSAA, a cappella.

About this Performance

This piece was performed by a virtual choir made up of members and friends of Voci Women’s Vocal Ensemble. Fifty-two talented women recorded themselves singing their part on their smartphones, in their own homes and sent in their recording via email. These recordings were blended together to create the performance that you will hear today.

The Text


Alleluia

Vidimus stellam eius in Oriente,

et venimus cum muneribus

adorare Dominum.

Amen


We have seen his star in the East

and we come with gifts

to adore the Lord.

Amen.
