Jauchzet dem Herrn, Psalm 100      Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy
Make a joyful sound unto the Lord, all ye lands, Serve the Lord with gladness, come before his presence with singing. For the Lord is good, his mercy is everlasting, and his truth endureth to all generations.
 
Savana Muscat, student director
Sommarafton       Ingvar Lidholm
Summer evening, the wind is still in the green-light Sun by our ivy draped home. After summer, the woods are quiet and the bird no longer sing. The leaves fall. Summer evening.
Max Arvidsson, choral assistant
 
Requiem, K. 629        Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
      Confutatis
While the wicked are confounded, assigned to flames of woe unending, Call me with Thy saints surrounded. Low I kneel, with heart submission; see, like ashes, my contrition; help me in my last condition.
      Lacrimosa
Oh, that day of tears and weeping, when, from dust of earth returning, man must prepare for judgement. Spare, O God, in mercy spare him! Lord all pitying, Jesu blest, grant them Thine eternal rest. Amen.
      Domine Jesu
Lord Jesus Christ, King of Glory, deliver the souls of the faithful dead from punishment of Hell and from the bottomless pit; deliver them from the mouth of the lion; nor suffer the fiery lake to swallow them up, nor endless darkness to enshroud them But let Thy holy standardbearer Michael lead them to the sacred light, as once Thou promised to Abraham and his children.
 
I Was Glad      Sir C. Hubert H. Parry
 
 University Singers
Dr. Bruce Kotowich, director of choirs

Two French-Canadian Folksongs              arr. Richard S. Eaton
            Vive La Canadienne
Long live the Canadian, steal my heart, steal
Long live the Canadian and her pretty sweet eyes.
We lead her to the wedding, steal my heart, steal
We lead her to the wedding, in all hers finery.
We dance with our blondes, steal my heart, steal
We dance with our blondes, we change in turn.
 
A La Claire Fontaine
As I was walking by the clear fountain, I found the water so lovely I had to bathe.
I've loved you for so long, I will never forget you.
 
I lost my love without deserving it, because of a rosebud I kept from him.
I've loved you for so long, I will never forget you.
 
I wish the rose were still on the bush, and my sweetheart loved me still.
I've loved you for so long, I will never forget you.
