Featured will be the United States premiere of a contemporary work, Sounds of Light by German film composer Enjott Schneider, with texts of the medieval mystic, Hildegard von Bingen. Professor Wendy Farley of Emory’s Department of Religion will provide commentary on Hildegard. The concert also includes an a cappella motet by Ralph Vaughan Williams, with a text by renaissance English poet John Skelton, “A Prayer to the Father of Heaven.” The concluding work will be Psalm 113 by 18th century Italian composer Giovanni Martini.  Among the most famous musicians of his era, Martini was a prolific composer, especially of church music.  His students included J. C. Bach and Mozart. Via a new edition by Alejandro Garri, this will be the first performance in the world of this work since Martini’s time.  Accompanying will be Emory’s the Vega String Quartet , Timothy Albrecht, organist and Luther Enloe guitar. The Chancel Choir of Glenn Church sings, with Steven Darsey conducting.

The concert will take place in the acoustically renowned sanctuary of Glenn Memorial United Methodist Church, 1660 North Decatur Road, Atlanta, Georgia – free parking is available. Directions – www.glennumc.org
