For our fall concert, Glad of the Wind, Heritage Chorale sings Morten Lauridsen’s stirring but seldom performed
Mid-Winter Songs (settings of five poems by Robert Graves), along with two works by Vaughan Williams— the evocative and beautifully crafted Three Shakespeare Songs and the colorful In Windsor Forest —and a bright new work by local composer Paul Carey titled “The  Whole World Is Glad of the Wind.” Please join us for these concerts.
