2017-2018 Season

Antiqua – "Secret Service"

It wasn’t cool – or even legal – to be Catholic in post-Reformation England. That’s why William Byrd, appreciated for his compositions for the Anglican service and credited for his role in forging Elizabethan culture in his homeland, kept his Catholic faith quiet. But not so quiet as to deter him from composing a series of three Catholic Masses between 1592 and 1595, secretly presented in private homes with purposely small groups of singers to evade the very real possibility of imprisonment for treason. Together these deeply personal and devout Masses represent a remarkable portrait of faith in a time of religious persecution.

Te Deum Antiqua’s presentation of one of these, Byrd’s Mass for Five Voices, will include chants that would likely have been part of the clandestine services, in the intimate environment of a century-old midtown church that will transport the audience to a different time and place.

Chamber Choir – "To Light the World"

Te Deum Chamber Choir puts the exclamation point on its 10th season with a program that showcases wide-ranging repertoire for choir and organ. The program will include William Walton’s The Twelve, James MacMillan’s Te Deum, and works by Tavener, Pärt, McDowell, and Dove. Concluding the concert will be a commissioned piece by award-winning German composer Ingrid Stölzel, with a text written in celebration of Te Deum’s 10th season by Dr. Robert Bode.

To Light the World also will introduce Kansas City audiences to organist and composer Kurt Knecht, who brings national acclaim for his composing, teaching, and organ playing. The Sunday presentation will be Te Deum Chamber Choir’s first with the newly installed Richards, Fowkes & Co. organ at Village on Mission.

Te Deum is thrilled to offer patrons free child care at our concert on Sunday, November 12th at Village Presbyterian Church. Children will be cared for by trained, qualified church staff while parents enjoy the performance. In order to plan for staffing, parents must register their children by November 5 – please contact Marjean Lindquist at 913-671-2322 or Marjean.Lindquist@villagepres.org

Chamber Choir – "Seven Last Words from the Cross"

Te Deum Chamber Choir offers another choral reflection for the Lenten season with James MacMillan’s virtuosic masterpiece depicting the crucified Christ’s final utterances. Commissioned by BBC Television in 1994, it was first heard in seven nightly episodes broadcast for English audiences during that year’s Holy Week, and has been described by reviewers as “mesmerizing” and “deeply, deeply moving” with “an inexorable sense of the drama in the text.” “It is not easy,” one critic has noted, “but what riches there are for those who scale these heights!”

Prior to the March 25 performance at Village Presbyterian, Dr. Ryan Oldham will give a pre-concert lecture on MacMillan’s Seven Last Words from the Cross at 2:00pm in the Village Chapel. This lecture is free and open to the public.
