On Saturday at 8:00 p.m. in Chapin Hall, the Concert Choir will perform the U.S. premiere of Judd Greenstein’s ’01 Lamenting, a work commissioned with the generous support of the Jewish Studies Program. Greenstein has created a significant new work of great hope and emotional range, one of the best pieces yet by this young, brilliant composer.

The Chamber Choir will perform excerpts from Palestrina’s Lamentations,¬†which include settings of numerous Hebrew letters.

Greenstein incorporates and responds to Palestrina’s Hebrew letter settings and creates music of great scope and emotional range.

The concert will include a discussion regarding various intersections which occur in the new work: Christian/Jewish; high Renaissance/contemporary; Jerusalem/Rome; letter/note.
