Music by Giancarlo Aquilanti: Stanford Chamber Chorale and Philharmonic|
This is a very nice collection of chorale compositions by Stanford University professor, Giancarlo Aquilanti (b. 1959) superbly performed here by the Stanford Chamber Chorale and Philharmonic Orchestra on April 7, 8, and 9, 2008 in Stanford Memorial Church. – dBug || No FCCs
01-13. Mass: A Celebration of Life (1989, rev. 2007) – This composition is dedicated to Massimo Archetti who was a dear friend of the composer and was killed in an automobile accident at the age of twenty-nine.
14. Ubi Caritas (2007) – The text echoes a pre-existing liturgical hymn that celebrates the significance of charity as the receptacle of God's love.
15-21. Magnificat (2006) – The composition is scored for four soloists, double choir, complete orchestral brass section and four percussionists. The music begins with a lyrical melody setting the word Magnificat, and becomes more intricate in the section quia fecit mihi magna, reaching the high point with dispersit superbos mente cordis sui.
