Bucks County-based male a cappella group Cordus Mundi's concert season continues on April 8th @ 4pm in Doylestown at St. Paul's Lutheran Church 301 N. Main St., with the presentation of a passionate, stirring collection of predominantly a cappella choral music. The choral collection draws, with a few exceptions, from the music of 20th and 21st century composers, including Powell, Culloton, Casals, Chatman, Dawson, Shabalala, and Clarke, and features the world premiere of "Epitaph" for male chorus and piano, from Minnesota composer J. David Moore.

Moore's music has been called "endlessly inventive", "glorious … haunting … breathtaking …", and "joyous …wild and elemental" by critics and reviewers. Notes Cordus Mundi artistic director/founder Rick Rosen, "David Moore's new piece is stunning, beautiful and inspiring. We are thrilled and honored to be able to bring this wonderful music into the world."

 

 

Cordus & Friends + World Premiere!

Sunday, June 10, 2018 @ 4:00 p.m. - Trinity Episcopal Church, Solebury, PA

Trinity Solebury is Alive with the Sounds of (Choral) Music!

Bucks County-based male a cappella group Cordus Mundi concludes it's concert season June 10th @ 4pm with a musical extravaganza at Trinity Episcopal Church in Solebury, PA, featuring Cordus Mundi, the world premiere of a new piece from famed choral composer-arranger Alice Parker, Cordus' soprano & alto Friends, and guest conductor Dr. David Fryling of Hofstra University.

Cordus Mundi's section of the program spans the 12th - 21st century, including music from Perotin, Bright, Childs, Freddie Mercury (!), and the world premiere of Alice Parker's "How Deep the Silence of the Soul", commissioned by Cordus Mundi. Cordus' Friends & Dr. Fryling will present a musical set as well, and the concert concludes with the full Cordus & Friends choir, led by Dr. Fryling. 

"This concert is an honor for us", says Cordus Mundi artistic director/founder Rick Rosen. "It is an honor to host our Friends, to work with Dr. Fryling, and a special honor to be presenting a new Alice Parker piece."

Parker's emotional and contemplative "How Deep the Silence of the Soul" is the first piece to emerge as a result of the founding of the Cordus Mundi Commissioning Fund. The Fund is set up to enable Cordus Mundi to commission and present new male choral works on a semi-regular basis.
