The “poetry” on the program includes Robert Schumann’s “Romances and Ballads,” highly-charged miniature dramas that set romantic poetry by Goethe, Mörike, and Robert Burns, often to folk music themes. Similarly, Leos Janácek’s “Five Songs” draw on the rich folk traditions of Moravia. In setting to music folk poetry about love and nature, Janacek conveys a mixture of emotions, forever shifting between cheerfulness and wistful melancholy. “Be My Love,” by Karen Tarlow, a longtime member of the faculty at the UMass, is a richly melodic setting of the famous Elizabethan lyric, “Come live with me and be my love,” and draws on texts from Marlowe, Shakespeare and Sir Walter Raleigh. For this piece, Pioneer Valley Cappella is joined by clarinetist Hannah Berube and pianist Marianne Lockwood.

The “prophecy” is drawn from the book of Isaiah, set by Randall Thompson in his 1936 work “Peaceable Kingdom.” Skillful, singable, and uncommonly beautiful, this composition ranges in mood from the apocalyptic to the elegaic.

Finally, “Song for Athene” by the late Sir John Tavener is a static, sober, and emotionally wrenching mediation on grief. Tavener’s setting of passages from Hamlet achieved international acclaim when it was performed at the memorial service for Diana, Princess of Wales.

The concerts are free, with donations gratefully accepted. The Friday performance at All Saints Episcopal will be at 8:00 pm. The Sunday concert at St. John's will be at 4:00 pm. For more information, visit pioneervalleycappella.org.
