Description

PAUL MCCREESH conducts SUSANNA PHILLIPS soprano NICHOLAS PHAN tenor DALLAS SYMPHONY CHORUS PARRY Blest Pair of Sirens MENDELSSOHN Lobgesang (A Symphony Cantata) Paul McCreesh joins the DSO to conduct a grand spiritual concert including vocal soloists, the Dallas Symphony Chorus and the Lay Family Organ. Also known as his Symphony No. 2, Mendelssohn described the work as a "symphonic cantata." Bearing a superficial similarity to Beethoven's Ninth Symphony, it begins with three instrumental movements although on a much smaller scale and closes with a cantata-like structure for chorus, solo voices and orchestra. Blest Pair of Sirens is a short work for choir and orchestra by English composer Hubert Parry, who was commissioned to compose a piece for the Bach Choir of London to commemorate the Golden Jubilee of Queen Victoria.
