Angels of Light - works about angels, light and peace. The concert includes Ola Gjeilo's stunning new work, Serenity (O Magnum Mysterium) for a cappella 12-part chorus and solo cello, Claudio Monteverdi's six-voice Magnificat highlighting talented soloists, and Eric Whitacre's Lux Aurumque, the work made famous by his first "virtual choir." In addition, the concert features an eclectic mix of choral works by Jackson Berkey, Felix Mendelssohn, Fredrik Sixten, and the Nigerian carol, Betelehemu, with drums. In addition, the select Harmonium Chamber Singers will perform works by William Byrd, Edward Bairstow and Jocelyn Hagen. Recorded live in December 2012.

Circle of Breath - featuring Mozart's Coronation Mass and the East Coast premiere of a new chamber orchestra version of Samuel Barber's The Lovers by Robert Kyr. Based on the sensuous love poetry of Pablo Neruda, The Lovers is a stunning work for orchestra, baritone soloist and chorus. Dr. Anne Matlack continues the celebration of her 25th anniversary as artistic director of Harmonium by conducting this work on which she wrote her doctoral thesis, which - until Kyr's chamber version - had a prohibitively large orchestration. This will be the second-ever performance of this orchestration, premiered last summer by Conspirare, a professional chamber choir based in Austin, Texas. Rounding out the program will be the world premiere of a work written in honor of Dr. Matlack by Montclair-based composer Martin A. Sedek. The select Harmonium Chamber Singers will open with Barber's Three Reincarnations. Recorded live in March 2013.

Winds of Change - an eclectic mix of old and new choral works about singing and soul, wind and wisdom. The exciting variety around these themes includes Renaissance works (Schutz, Monteverdi), Romantic (Elgar), Contemporary (Abbie Betinis) and world music from French Canadian to South African, Turkish to Cuban. The select Harmonium Chamber Singers will perform works by John Taverner and Matthew Harris' latest Shakespeare Songs Book VI. Harmonium will perform the world premiere by the Grand Prize winner of the 16th Annual High School Student Choral Composition Contest. Recorded live in June 2013.
