Founded in 1982 as His Majestie's Clerkes, Bella Voce performs classic a cappella repertoire, early music of the Americas, and contemporary music from all over the world.

In their spring program, Bella Voce will turn to the German Romantics. Composers such as Johannes Brahms and Josef Rheinberger looked to the past for inspiration in creating new musical textures and colors. Rheinberger's ravishing "Cantus Missae" for double chorus is an archetypal example of this florid writing that uses extended harmonies while maintaining a sweet and organic vocal style.

“In post-tonal music, it’s simply that each composer, every time he writes a piece, has the opportunity of ‘making up his own language,’ so to speak, conditioned only by the requirement that it be a language, i.e., that from the point of view of the imagined listener the morphological elements have a recognizable identity in each case and that their status as musically relative ‘norms’ and ‘deviants’ (as Meyer puts it) be clearly established in the works.” -- Elliott Carter

What exactly are these “morphological elements” for the listener? Furthermore, how is the status of “norm” or “deviant” established in a work? In this revised presentation, PhD candidate Peter Smucker will make the argument that the “recognizable identities” to which Carter is referring are essentially musical gestures. This idea will be explored through the demonstration of a selection of Carter's vocal music: Three Poems of Robert Frost, Voyage, Am Klavier (Of Challenge and of Love), and La Musique.
