CORDUS MUNDI CONCERT SEASON 2018-2019
Cordus Mundi - The 2018-2019 Season
Cordus Mundi's fourteenth season is loaded with "the good stuff". We'll be professionally recording most of our concerts this year, and plan to compile and then release our second CD, made up of the season's best performances. All of our Cordus-commissioned or Cordus-premiered pieces will be heard again, along with male choral repertoire from an eclectic mix of composers and musical styles. It'll be an exceptional year for Cordus - be sure to be a part of it!

November 18, 2018 @ 4:00 p.m. - St. Paul's Lutheran Church, Doylestown, PA
Our season begins with a memorable collection of mostly a cappella music, spanning several centuries. We'll revisit two recent premieres (Moore's Epitaph and Barnum's Young Man's Song) along with music from Poulenc, DiOrio, Barnum, Gibbs, Forrest, Bussewitz-Quarm, Uusberg, Rudol, and more. And yes, the mid-20th century classic Unforgettable is also on the program.

We paint a broad picture in celebration of the end of winter and the coming of spring, with a selection of music drawn from our vast repertoire and from new sources, as well. We'll revisit more commissions/premieres, including Perkins' Memory of Youth, Wadsworth's Love's History, and Parker's How deep the silence, and hear music from Dunstable, Mendelssohn, Schumann, Clausen, Horvath, Moore, Stills, Beech, Sumner, and maybe, just maybe something from that F. Mercury fellow.
Over the Rainbow
Featuring Cordus Mundi & Friends
June 9 @ 4:00 p.m. - Trinity Episcopal Church, Solebury, PA
Cordus Mundi is always thrilled and pleased to welcome our soprano and alto Friends and Dr. David Fryling, our guest conductor, for the annual season-ending Cordus Mundi & Friends concert. Our audience will have an opportunity to hear male choral music from Cordus, female choral music from our Friends, and full choir music from our combined group. One more Cordus commission/premiere - Barnum's The Universal is included in Cordus' set. There's no better way to bring the 2018-19 choral season to a close than with Cordus Mundi & Friends!
