Voices Chorale NJ Presents “Fields of Gold: Songs in the Key of Hope”
On Saturday, May 13 at 4 p.m. at Trinity Church in Princeton, Voices Chorale NJ (VCNJ) presents Fields of Gold: Songs in the Key of Hope. The program features music from a range of modern composers, including arrangements of songs by Sting, Dolly Parton, and Carly Simon. In this concert, VCNJ also concludes their rendition of “Folk Songs of the Four Seasons” by Ralph Vaughn Williams with the spring and summer sections of the work.
The texts speak of sky, fields, stars, meadows, birds, rivers, light, merriment, spring, and love. Rob Long, a singer with the chorale, finds the music in the concert to be “both uplifting and sometimes unexpected. Like when a friend gives you a great hug that you didn’t know you needed.”
Additional works in the concert include “The Birds Lullaby” by Sarah Quartel, “A Song of Blue” by Bob Chilcott, “Lunar Lullaby” Jacob Narverud, and
“Choose Love” by Kyle Pederson.
