The first half is sacred and the second half is secular. Because we could not perform Kodály's Missa Brevis at our March concert because the organ at Knox was out of commission, that piece had to be deferred until this concert. That meant removing pieces that were to be sung at the May concert so that there would be room to accommodate the Missa Brevis. So, the March concert went from being entirely sacred as extra pieces had to added and the May concert went from being entirely secular because of the Missa Brevis.
This concert is entitled Music is Vibration as that title encompasses both sacred and secular music—in fact, all music. It also pays homage to the world of music: emotion, invisible and intangible yet touching deep within, melody, harmony. It also allows us to pay tribute to Dominic Gregorio from whose poem these words appear. Dominic was a talented musician (choral conductor) and teacher at the University of Regina Music department, as well as a poet and genuine human being. Canadian composer of Cree descent, Andrew Balfour, has beautifully set Dominic's words to music.
