Very good concert all round. Nice blend of music from Gregorian chant to Schubert's German Mass to some spirituals, and a few modern-but-not-atonal bits as well. The amateur status of the chorus could be seen on a few ragged endings and entrances and in the lack of power in the male voices (it's so hard to find enough good male singers, especially basses), but they were well-rehearsed and the voices really blended well.
Favorite pieces: a set of Shaker songs, arranged by Kevin Siegfried. A Shaw/Parker arrangement of "Sometimes I feel like a motherless child" which had, as the program notes put it, "precarious harmony" that was unsettling and added to the mournful feel of the song. The Hymn to St. Cecelia that opened the program (and the Ave Maria by Biebl that followed it, though the DCG rendition suffered from my memory of the Chanticleer performance of the same piece). And the Schubert "Mass", actually short pieces to accompany the Mass.
I need to sign up for the DCG mailing list or whatever they have--I definitely want to hear more from this group.
