Hope College Women's Chorus to
Perform on Monday, April 8

Posted March 29, 2002

HOLLAND -- The Hope College Women's Chorus will perform on Monday, April 8, at 8 p.m. in Dimnent Memorial Chapel.

The public is invited. Admission is free. Special guests Twelfth Street Harmony, a men's close-harmony group, and the early-music ensemble Collegium Musicum will join the Women's Chorus for part of the performance.

The chorus will perform a setting of "Fair Warning," the poem that begins "When I am an old woman, I shall wear purple." A Norwegian folk song, it mimics the sound of old women gossiping.

Sacred music to be performed includes a unison piece, "Serenity," by American composer Charles Ives, and a spiritual, "I'm Going to Sing!," with several soloists from the choir.

Three contemporary sacred Latin pieces inspired by Gregorian chant, "Tantum Ergo" (a Eucharistic hymn by St. Thomas Aquinas) "Tu es Petrus" ("You are Peter") and "Tota pulchra es" (a song of praise to the Virgin Mary), will also be part of the performance.

Dimnent Memorial Chapel is located on College Avenue at 12th Street.
