New CD Features DU Choral Groups
A new CD, Songs of Faith and Spirit, featuring the choirs of Duquesne University’s Mary Pappert School of Music, has been released. The recording showcases live performances from the past two years, including the most recent O Come All Ye Faithful Advent concert in December 2006.
Works chosen for the CD represent a wide range of uplifting songs, including Vanga Yohanna, a spirited Kenyan hymn that lent unforgettable accompaniment to the opening processions at the O Come All Ye Faithful concerts, as well as 25 other selections ranging from folk songs and spirituals to classical compositions.
Each of the School of Music’s choral organizations—Voices of Spirit, Pappert Men’s Chorale, Pappert Women’s Chorale, Pappert Chorale and University Singers—is represented on the CD.
According to Christine Jordanoff, professor of music education and director of choral organizations, members of the Voices of Spirit are selling copies of the CD to raise funds for their Fall 2007 trip to Vienna, Prague and Budapest.
