About Exultet Terra
CAPPELLA CLAUSURA, a Newton-based professional vocal ensemble, is proud to present "Exultet Terra", the first program of our 2023-2024 season. Exultet Terra is for double reeds: 2 oboes, English horn, 2 bassoons and double chorus of 16 singers. It centers on three poems by Welsh-born poet George Herbert (1593-1633): Paradise, Colos, and Heaven. The composer, Hilary Tann, has interspersed within the poetry language from the Psalms in both the Latin Vulgate and the King James bible. With Exultet Terra translating to “rejoice in the earth”, this piece is a reflection of the amazing landscapes and natural world that Tann witnessed throughout her life. With her unique ability of synesthesia, Tann was able to use her combined senses to mimic the immersive atmosphere she experienced. Today, Cappella Clausura is so excited to kick off the beginning of the 2023-24 season by providing one of a kind programming that both honors the roots of the organization, as well as a dear friend.
