VERMONT'S PREMIER WOMEN'S CHORUS
We Are delighted to share two very special videos for Valentines Day!
Both videos are set to tracks from Bella Voce’s new Down by the Riverside CD which we released in November. The first selection is Rene Clausen’s Set Me as a Seal - a deeply moving love song that describes love that is so strong even “many waters” cannot quench it.
The second video features Cantiamo, Bella Voce’s small ensemble, singing Fair Phyllis, a madrigal by Renaissance composer John Farmer. It’s a frolicsome song about a shepherdess named Phyllis that gets lost while she is tending her sheep and then is found by her lover. Bella Voce members have fond memories (and a few photos!) of rolling hills covered with sheep from our trips to Ireland and Scotland.
We hope you enjoy these songs of love and we invite you to keep an eye out for more offerings from Bella Voce in May!
Bella Voce was selected to represent Burlington in the Burlington-Bethlehem-Arad Sister City Program in December 2020. Our Holiday video, along with greetings from Burlington’s Mayor Weinberger, joined videos of choirs from all over the world as part of a presentation to be aired in Bethlehem, Palestine on Christmas Eve.
Thank you Mousa Ishaq, the Burlington chairman of the Burlington-Bethlehem-Arad Sister City Program, for choosing Bella Voce for this international honor!
It's here! Our new CD!
