PROGRAM

Benedicamus Domino: Let us praise the Lord.
For centuries, composers have sought to set to music their hopes and doubts about the Christian promise of salvation. Amarcord presents a string of impressive examples from the 19th and 20th centuries, as much disturbing as comforting. Composers include Hugo Wolf, Richard Strauss, Max Reger, Carl Orff, Darius Milhaud, Francis Poulenc, and Krysztof Penderecki.
