"Romantic Women" will explore the depth of music written for women's voices by the masters of the Romantic period. It was during this time that music for trained women's choruses became the inspiration for major composers of the 19th century. We will perform works that Johannes Brahms wrote for his Hamburg Frauenchor, the sacred works by Giuseppe Verdi including one of his last compositions - "Laudi alle Virgine" and Puccini's "Te Deum", Franz Schubert's poignant "Psalm 23", Felix Mendelssohn's "Psalm 66" and Sergei Rachmaninoff's Six Choruses, Op. 15 for women's chorus and many more.
