DaCapo Choir’s “Life and love and wings”

I attended the DaCapo Chamber Choir’s concert “life and love and wings.” The title is from a poem by e. e. cummings.

Here’s the program:

  • Lux aeterna — Edward Elgar
  • From a Distant Star — Jeff Enns
  • Let My Love Be Heart — Jake Runestad
  • I thank You God for most this amazing day — Eric Whitacre
  • Nocturne — Leonard Enns
  • Santiago (movement IV from Path of Miracles) — Joby Talbot

The Jeff Enns piece was a commission for the choir, a premiere, and featured Jennifer Enns Mololo as soloist. The composer was in the audience for the performance.

I can’t pick a favourite piece, as they were all filled with beautiful moments.

The choir is conducted by Leonard Enns. Enns says in the program: “As there is no shadow without an attending light, so today our program is imbued with both — the grief and sorrow of departure, and the anticipation and joy of arrival.”

I previously discussed their concert “The Sun’s Birthday.”
