From Fear to Dancing!

Exultate’s 21st season season begins with the Fall concert series, From Fear to Dancing.

Join Exultate for a musical journey on the road of life from fear and trouble to comfort, joy and dancing – a cornucopia of choral gems both old and new.
It is all designed to Move your Soul!

J.S. Bach 1685-1750

Hear Johann Sebastian Bach’s motet for double chorus, Fürchte dich nicht (Be Not Afraid).  It is a masterful example of the composer’s emphasis on text painting and contrapuntal writing coupled with rare chromaticism. The text and music echo the human path of life through troubles to comfort.

Henry Purcell 1659-95

Marvel at the masterful treatment of the text in Henry Purcell‘s setting of Psalm 3, Jehova, quam multi sunt hostes mei (Lord, how many are my foes). A true example of the composer’s marriage of music and text, this motet, one of only two Latin motets of Purcell, brings the listener from fear of enemies all around us to comfort in faith.
