The prestigious Catalan children’s choir Cor Vivaldi will perform this week their Spring concert, The Four Seasons of the Vivaldi Choir. Its director, Oscar Boada has expressly commissioned two musical premieres for the occasion and for the choir. Will premiere
Magnificat, by Narcís Bonet (1933) and the musical suite Canticum Sacrum by Josu Elberdin (1976).
Canticum Sacrum is a suite of religious pieces formed by 4 choral parts. Each choral number precedes an instrumental antiphon, calling to discover the secrets of the text that will be sung later. The chorale numbers conform to four psalms of different color and spirit. It begins with a quiet Veni Creator Spiritus, sung a cappella by the choir. A psalm of peace and tranquility follows him as he is. The Lord is my shepherd. With the accompaniment of the flute and the piano, the choir discovers the heavenly idea of the good shepherd who cares for us and always seeks calm for our souls. It will be later Psalm 42 Judica Mea Deus, manifested with a double chorus, full of doubts and dissonant echoes, that will tell us about the reality, depth and complexity of the human being. Finally, all the ways of the suite end in the 150th psalm, Laudate Dominun, full of joy and vitality, with the participation of soloist, flute, piano and choir, filling our being with luminosity and rhythm.
The premiere will take place on Saturday 25th of March, at 19.00 hours at Auditori Axa in Barcelona.
The concert will also be of solidarity with the Soya Project of the Bateria Ibiliz Association.
