Heaven and Nature Sing!

RCS is gearing up for its Fall 2015 concert entitled, Heaven and Nature Sing, set for Saturday, December 5 at 8 PM at St. Clare's Church, Staten Island, NY.


The main pieces of the concert are joyful and fit in with the spirit of the season.  They have been famously put to music by many of the masters of the choral repertory.  "My soul magnifies the Lord" is the opening for the Magnificat, which is Mary's expression of joy to her cousin Elizabeth after being visited by the angel and told that she would be the mother of God, set to the music of Antonio Vivaldi in the Baroque style.


Te Deum is a traditional hymn of praise and thanksgiving.  Karl Jenkins's and Felix Mendelssohn's beautiful compositions will be the settings for this prayer.


Heaven and Nature Sing will be a new addition to this seasons' repertory, which combines Joy to the World and Ding Dong Merrily on High in a delightful four part celebration.


If you love to sing Christmas carols, then come on down and join RCS in its traditional holiday sing-along!
