Zephyrus, Central Virginia’s Early Music Vocal Ensemble™™ recently returned from an exciting experience. The ensemble — which includes WTJU’s own volunteer announcer Sandy Snyder — sang as the choir in residence at St. Mary’s Cathedral in Edinburgh, Scotland, July 8 – 14, 2013.
Below is a video clip of a few of the pieces the group performed. As you can see, their repertoire is quite extensive.
Missa Io son ferito ahi lasso by Orlando di Lasso
Magnificat in G minor by Henry Purcell
Beati quorum via by Charles Stanford
Psalm 42, setting by Wesley
And I Saw a New Heaven by Malcolm Archer
Sanctus from the Missa Brevis by Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina
Psalm 47, setting by Davy
Nunc Dimittis in G Minor by Henry Purcell
Our announcers aren’t just music lovers. Some of them, like Sandy, are top-notch performers as well!
