Choral Union to Perform

The Department of Performing Arts at SUNY Cortland announces that the Choral Union, under the direction of guest conductor Marion Gaimbattista, will present a concert of music by Schubert, Britten, Byrd, and Tallis on Tuesday, May 8 at 8 p.m. in the Dowd Fine Arts theater.

Maestra Giambattista has selected Franz Schubert's most popular choral work, his Mass No. 2 in G. Soloists for this selection will be sopranos Barbara Jo Williams, Eena Davis, Elizabeth Wolff, and Annie Marchetta; tenor Paul Yaman; and basses Emmanuel Sikora, Thomas Bonne, and John Sikora.

Also featured on the program is the British composer Benjamin Britten's unique and brilliantly colored "Hymn to St. Cecilia," with text by W. H. Auden. Soloists in this piece will be soprano Denise Banner-Haley, mezzo-soprano Gail Behrenfeld, tenor James Ulrich, and baritone Stuart Gillim.

Two shorter works by renaissance British composers will begin the concert: William Byrd's processional hymn "Ave verum corpus" (Behold the true body) and Thoams Tallis' anthem "If Ye Love me."

Noted pianist and harpsichordist Alan Giambattista will provide the piano accompaniment for the Schubert mass.

Admission to this concert is free. The Dowd Theater is handicapped-accessible. For further information, contact Prof. Giambattista at 758-4100, x1197.
