It is said that music began with movement. This concert at Church of the Holy Cross in Redmond explores the various ways in which dance has been embraced by choral music. Brahms' Liebeslieder, ("Love Song") Waltzes are perennial favorites. Dance was all the rage during Bach's time, and the most dancelike of his choral motets is surely "Der Geist hilft." Piazzolla's tangos have also been arranged for chorus. The concert wraps up with a bit of Americana, found in Copland's country-dance "Stomp Your Foot" and Ives' rousing "Circus Band."
