The combined choir of the Church of the Incarnation is certainly among the finest in the area, and its members are workhorses throughout the year in that they sing three services every week, at least two of which are totally different from one another. It is among the few in Dallas to sing Anglican chant, and the only one to sing choral evensong weekly. As if all of that weren’t enough, the choir occasionally host concerts and other special events. Concerts are a rare opportunity to get up close and personal with the choir without the confines of the liturgy.
Come see why this choir has earned an international reputation for excellence! The final concert of the 2012-13 season is this Friday, May 17, at 7pm at the Church of the Incarnation. The program will include works by Tallis, Bruckner, Finzi, and Howells, among others. The suggested donation at the door is $10, and proceeds will go toward funding the choir’s next recording and tour. For more information, please visit the church’s website by clicking here.
As for the next tour, there are new details available. Rather than the originally planned tour of England (Gloucester Cathedral and Westminster Abbey), a domestic tour is now planned. While the schedule is not finalized, the tour will begin with a week spent in residence at the National Cathedral in Washington, DC (a return home for organist/choirmaster Scott Dettra). From there, the choir will make its way up to New York where they will sing at Saint Thomas Church (5th Avenue). An intervening stop as well as a locale for evensong in New York are in the works. This is an excellent opportunity to promote the choir and the parish domestically. The following tour will be planned for 2016 and will involve a trip across the pond.
