Men's Choir in a Virtual Concert

April 19, 2021
The Baylor University Men’s Choir will stream its spring concert on Monday, April 26, beginning at 7:30 p.m. (The concert was originally scheduled for April 20.) This fine 70-member choral ensemble is conducted by C. Randall Bradley, Director of the Church Music Program at Baylor University. The choir’s graduate conductor is Will McLean, a Choral Conducting student from Duluth, Minnesota, and the accompanist is Chad Houk, a doctoral student in Church Music from Waco.
Opening the concert will be Dr. Bradley conducting “Non nobis Domine” by Rosephanye Powell (b. 1962) and the Robert Scholz arrangement of “The Glory of the Father” by Egil Hovland (1924-2013).
Next, Will McLean will conduct the Men’s Choir in an arrangement by Eugene Rogers of “Hanacpachap cuccicuinin” (“Heaven’s Joy”) by Spanish-Peruvian composer and Franciscan priest Juan Pérez Bocanegra (1598-1645).
Also to be heard are “The Eternal Council” by Russian composer Pavel Chesnokov (1877-1944) and “Harriet Tubman” by Hollo Dilworth (b. 1970), both of which will be conducted by Mr. McLean.
Dr. Bradley will lead the Men’s Choir in the final four pieces. The choir will sing the world premiere of “Yet She Doth Shine” by Terre Johnson (b. 1959), an arrangement by Jordan Tucker of “The Rocketmen,” the William Appling setting of “We Shall Walk Through the Valley in Peace,” and, finally, Kurt Kaiser’s arrangement of “Traveling Mercies.”
