Cantus Novus concludes its 2012-2013 concert season under the artistic direction of Dr. John P. Leonard with a celebration of love – of God, humanity, and nature – in “All the World Sings Amore.” The program is divided into five subsets of love: folk love songs, sacred love songs, songs relating to marriage, songs of the Rose, and madrigals and chansons about love.
Also featured on the program are arrangements by local composers including Ryan Tibbetts’ setting of “Ubi Caritas” which he composed for his own bride on their wedding day, and Thomas Juneau’s lovely arrangement for women of “The Rose of Sharon.
Concerts are offered at 8:00pm on Friday, May 3rd, at Trinity Episcopal Church (6587 Upper York, Solebury) and on Saturday, May 4th, at Newtown Presbyterian Church (25 N. Chancellor Street, Newtown).
Tickets are $20 general admission, $10 for students and may be purchased by calling 215-968-3414 or by visiting the Cantus Novus website, www.cantusnovus.org.
