UMS Night School: Constructing Identity

In our ongoing Night School series, UMS explores the dynamic quality
of how human and social identities are constructed and explored in this
season’s artistic program. How do artists’ personal identities inform their
work? Do audiences’ own identities shape what they see on the stage?
UMS Night School invites participants to discover the intersections of
performance and identity in music, theater, and dance, and to meet others
who share a similar interest. The Night School curriculum will include
attendance at and discussion of Young Jean Lee’s Theater Company’s
Untitled Feminist Show & Straight White Men, Tanya Tagaq, Taylor
Mac, and Camille A. Brown & Dancers Black Girl—Linguistic Play. These
90-minute classes combine conversation, interactive exercises, and lectures
with genre experts to draw you into the themes related to identity and
performance. Drop in to just one session, or attend them all. Events are free,
and no pre-registration is required.

Tradition
Builds
the
Future

WINTER 2016

In our 137th season, we continue to showcase traditional performances
alongside contemporary artists for an offering that is unlike anything
available in the Midwest. UMS grew from a group of local members of the
University and townspeople in the 1870s who gathered together for the
study of Handel’s Messiah. Led by Professor Henry Simmons Frieze and
conducted by Professor Calvin Cady, the group assumed the name The
Choral Union. Many Choral Union members were also affiliated with the
University, and the University Musical Society was established soon after in
December 1880.
Since that first season, UMS has expanded greatly and now presents the
very best from a wide spectrum of the performing arts: internationally
renowned recitalists and orchestras, dance and chamber ensembles, jazz
and global music performers, and contemporary stagework and classical
theater. Through educational programming, the commissioning of new
works, youth programs, artist residencies, and collaborative projects, we
continue to strengthen our reputation for artistic distinction and innovation.

DAL L AS AN D SH ARON DORT
“It could almost be said that we chose to move to Ann Arbor
post-career because of UMS. Who wouldn’t want to live in a
city that can attract such talent, and fill a 3,500-seat hall with
so many enthusiastic audiences? Now, we enjoy each season
all the more because, as donors, we’re an active part of UMS.
What a privilege!”

N O W T H AT Y O U ’ R E I N
Y O U R S E AT. . .
Music speaks to us in ways words
cannot. Whether it is the ineffable
joy in Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9,
the struggle in a Shostakovich string
quartet, or the ostensible sorrow in
Barber’s Adagio for Strings, music
helps to give voice to the deepest
of human emotion. Today, we travel
through three choral masterpieces
where text and music articulate the
human response to the presence and
inevitable loss of love in one’s life.
In Goethe’s poem set by Brahms, the
singers plead with the “Vater der
Liebe” (Father of Love) to refresh a
lonely heart. In Vaughan Williams’
setting of George Herbert’s Mystical
Songs, we feel the urgency to
connect to the Love that comes from
something larger than ourselves.
Finally, in Duruflé’s Requiem, we
sense the serenity of an angelic
presence as it leads those we love into
eternal paradise. For it is by our love
for someone that we struggle with
their death. It is in our music that we
reconcile the two.
—Scott Hanoian

A LT O R H A P S O D Y, O P. 5 3 ( 1 8 6 9 )
Johannes Brahms
Born May 7, 1833 in Hamburg, Germany
Died April 3, 1897 in Vienna, Austria
UMS premiere: Marian Anderson with the Philadelphia Orchestra and the
men of the UMS Choral Union conducted by Eugene Ormandy; May 1939 in
Hill Auditorium.
Snapshots of History…In 1869:
· Elizabeth Cady Stanton is the first woman to testify before the US
Congress, and forms the National Woman Suffrage Association with
Susan B. Anthony
· Dmitri Mendeleev makes a formal presentation of his periodic table to
the Russian Chemical Society
· The American Museum of Natural History is founded in New York
· The first game of American football between two American colleges is
played; Rutgers University beats Princeton University 6–4

Brahms had been an active and
successful choral conductor since
his youth. After his move from
Hamburg to Vienna, he first became
known as the director of the city’s
Singakademie. Choral works, both
accompanied and unaccompanied,
form a significant part of his output,
even if these works, with the
exception of the German Requiem,
are not heard today as frequently as
they used to be.
In the late 1860s, Brahms wrote
several important choral works,
including the Liebeslieder-Waltzer
(Op. 52), the Alto Rhapsody (Op. 53),
the Song of Destiny (Op. 54) and the
Song of Triumph (Op. 55). The first
two of these works were inspired
by Brahms’s unrequited love for
Julie Schumann, one of Robert and
Clara Schumann’s daughters. While
the waltzes express the composer’s
ardent feelings, the Rhapsody gives

voice to his disappointment, although
comfort and solace appear at the
end. In 1869, Julie married an Italian
aristocrat, and the Alto Rhapsody
was Brahms’s wedding present for
the young couple. (Another personal
connection: at the first performance,
the alto solo was sung by Amalie
Weiss, the wife of Brahms’s best
friend, the great violinist Joseph
Joachim.)
In this case, the title “Rhapsody”
should be understood in the original
Greek sense of “excerpt(s) from a
larger work.” The rhapsodoi (epic
singers) performed selected episodes
from Homer, and it was the idea of
their vocal virtuosity that carried
over into the Romantic piano
rhapsodies of Liszt or Brahms.
The text of the Alto Rhapsody
was taken from Goethe’s Winter
Journey in the Harz Mountains,
where a merry hunting scene in the
5

forest is suddenly interrupted by
the appearance of a misanthrope
who stands outside society, suffers
from his loneliness, and yearns
for consolation. Omitting the
hunters, Brahms only depicted the
protagonist’s turbulent feelings in
the first part of his composition.
Subsequently, the prayer for inner
peace is intoned together by the
soloist and the men’s chorus. At this
point the key changes from “tragic” c
minor to “soothing” C Major, and the
heavenly instrument mentioned in
the poem is suggested by the broken
chords played by the cellos pizzicato
(with plucked strings).
T E X T A N D T R A N S L AT I O N
Text by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Aber abseits wer ist’s?
Im Gebüsch verliert sich der Pfad.
Hinter ihm schlagen
Die Sträuche zusammen,
Das Gras steht wieder auf,
Die Öde verschlingt ihn.
Ach, wer heilet die Schmerzen
Des, dem Balsam zu Gift ward?
Der sich Menschenhass
Aus der Fülle der Liebe trank?
Erst verachtet, nun ein Verächter,
Zehrt er heimlich auf
Seinen eigenen Wert
In ungenügender Selbstsucht.

But who is that on the side?
His path disappears in the bushes,
behind him
the branches spring together,
the grass stands up again;
the wasteland engulfs him.
Ah, who heals the pains of him
for whom balsam turned to poison?
Of him who drank hatred of mankind
from the abundance of love?
First scorned, now a scorner,
he secretly feeds
on his own merit,
in unsatisfying selfishness.

Ist auf deinem Psalter,
Vater der Liebe, ein Ton
Seinem Ohre vernehmlich,
So erquicke sein Herz!
Öffne den umwölkten Blick
Über die tausend Quellen
Neben dem Durstenden
In der Wüste!

If there is on your psaltery,
Father of love, one note
his ear can hear,
then refresh his heart!
Open his clouded gaze
to the thousand springs
next to him who thirsts
in the wilderness!

FIVE MYSTICAL SONGS (1911)
Ralph Vaughan Williams
Born October 12, 1872 in Gloucestershire, United Kingdom
Died August 26, 1958 in London
UMS premiere: This piece has never been performed on a UMS concert.
Snapshots of History…In 1911:
· The Lincoln Memorial Commission is established to find an ideal site for
the proposed Lincoln Memorial
· International Women’s Day is celebrated for the first time
· The Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire in New York City kills 146
· The very first Indianapolis 500 automobile race is held in the US, won by
Ray Harroun at an average speed of 74.59 miles per hour
When Ralph Vaughan Williams
started his career as a composer,
English musical life was entirely
dominated by Sir Edward Elgar,
many of whose greatest works
were premiered in the first decade
of the 20th century. Although he
acknowledged his debt to Elgar,
Vaughan Williams reacted against
the intense late Romantic passion
of his older colleague. He sought
other sources of inspiration, and
found them in the past: in traditional
English folksong, and in older English
church music. These sources inspired
his numerous sacred works, including
a large number of carol arrangements.
Although Vaughan Williams served
as the editor of the English Hymnal,
he was not a believer himself.
He had a reputation for being an
atheist during his student days at
Cambridge; in the words of his second
wife, Ursula, “he later drifted into a
cheerful agnosticism.” Yet, from his
fascination with religious music — the
only continuous musical tradition
that had existed in England since

the Middle Ages — he derived both
technical experience and a spiritual
nourishment that can be felt in works
written throughout his long life.
The Five Mystical Songs are a
good example of how a composer’s
involvement with old musical forms
may lead to something new. The
simple vocal lines have a distinctly
archaic flavor; yet the harmonies were
— in 1911 — quite modern, influenced
by French impressionism. (In 1908,
Vaughan Williams had taken some
composition lessons with Maurice
Ravel, who was actually three years
his junior.) For instance, Vaughan
Williams was fond of chords moving
in parallel motion across various
tonalities — a technique often found in
the works of Debussy and Ravel.
The texts for these songs are by
George Herbert (1593–1633), a
religious poet educated, like Vaughan
Williams himself, at Cambridge
University. Vaughan Williams had
been attracted to Herbert’s poetry
since his student days; one of his
earliest surviving works is Herbert
7

setting from the early 1890s. Herbert
was a gifted musician himself, playing
both the lute and the viol, and often
mentioned music in his poetry.
Vaughan Williams chose to set five
of Herbert’s poems. There is a certain
symmetry in the construction of the
cycle: the first and last movements
are songs of thanksgiving (the
first more meditative, the second
jubilant). The second and fourth
are exceedingly simple, hymn-like
songs with repeated strophes. The
central song is the most complex,
both poetically and musically. This
poem (which originally stood at the
end of Herbert’s book) is an allegory:
Christ is represented as “Love,” and
the poem elaborates on the mystery
of the Eucharist. Vaughan Williams
emphasized this by introducing
the melody of the chant “O sacrum
convivium,” sung by the chorus
without words. English musicologist
Michael Kennedy found “Love Bade
Me Welcome” the most forwardlooking of the songs, discovering
links with the Pastoral Symphony
composed between 1916 and 1921.
Certainly, the dramatic dialog
between a tormented sinner and
an all-forgiving Love (conflict and
resolution) were captured here most
vividly, with great evocative power.

TEXTS
Text by George Herbert

Easter
Rise, heart; thy Lord is risen. Sing his praise
Without delays,
Who takes thee by the hand, that thou likewise
With him may’st rise:
That, as his death calcined thee to dust,
His life may make thee gold, and much more, Just.
Awake, my lute, and struggle for thy part
With all thy art.
The cross taught all wood to resound his name
Who bore the same.
His stretched sinews taught all strings, what key
Is best to celebrate this most high day.
Consort both heart and lute, and twist a song
Pleasant and long:
Or since music is but three part vied,
And multiplied;
O let thy blessed Spirit bear a part,
And make up our defects with his sweet art.

I Got Me Flowers
I got me flowers to strew thy way;
I got me boughs off many a tree:
But thou wast up by break of day,
And brought’st thy sweets along with thee.
The Sun arising in the East,
Though he give light, and the East perfume,
If they should offer to contest
With thy arising, they presume.
Can there be any day but this,
Though many suns to shine endeavor?
We count three thousand, but we miss:
There is but one, but that one ever.

9

Love Bade Me Welcome
Love bade me welcome; yet my soul drew back,
Guilty of dust and sin.
But quick-eyed Love, observing me grow slack
From my first entrance in,
Drew nearer to me, sweetly questioning,
If I lack’d any thing.
A guest, I answer’d, worthy to be here:
Love said, You shall be he.
I the unkind, ungrateful? Ah, my dear,
I cannot look on thee.
Love took my hand, and smiling did reply,
Who made the eyes but I?
Truth, Lord, but I have marr’d them: let my shame
Go where it doth deserve.
And know you not, says Love, who bore the blame?
My dear, then I will serve.
You must sit down, says Love, and taste my meat:
So I did sit and eat.

The Call
Come, my Way, my Truth, my Life:
Such a Way, as gives us breath:
Such a Truth, as ends all strife:
Such a Life, as killeth death.
Come, my Light, my Feast, my Strength:
Such a Light, as shows a feast;
Such a Feast, as mends in length;
Such a Strength, as makes his guest.
Come, my Joy, my Love, my Heart:
Such a Joy, as none can move:
Such a Love, as none can part:
Such a Heart, as joys in love.

10

Antiphon
Let all the world in every corner sing,
My God and King.
The heavens are not too high,
His praise may thither fly:
The earth is not too low,
His praises there may grow.
Let all the world in every corner sing,
My God and King.
The Church with Psalms must shout,
No door can keep them out:
But above all, the heart
Must bear the longest part.
Let all the world in every corner sing,
My God and King.

R E Q U I E M , O P. 9 ( 1 9 4 7 )
Maurice Duruflé
Born January 11, 1902 in Louviers, France
Died June 16, 1986 in Louveciennes
UMS premiere: UMS Choral Union with Thomas Sheets conducting; March
2003 in Pease Auditorium in Ypsilanti.
Snapshots of History…In 1947:
· Jackie Robinson, the first African American in Major League Baseball
since the 1880s, signs a contract with the Brooklyn Dodgers
· David Bowie is born
· The AK-47 assault rifle enters production, becoming the most produced
gun in history
· The Muslim majority region formed by the Partition of India gains
independence from the British Empire and adopts the name Pakistan
Many famous French composers
— among them César Franck,
Camille Saint-Saëns, Gabriel Fauré,
and Olivier Messiaen — were also
organists, serving long tenures in
various Parisian churches. Maurice
Duruflé was a distinguished
representative of this tradition. He
was appointed organist at SaintÉtienne-du-Mont, a landmark Gothic
edifice just behind the Panthéon,
in 1930 and remained there until
his death 56 years later. Unlike the
other composers mentioned, he was
first and foremost an organist. He
was a world-famous recitalist who
made many extended concert tours
in Europe and the US; he published
only a handful of works for the organ,
a few short choral and instrumental
pieces, and the Requiem which,
written in 1947, became his bestknown composition. The Requiem was
commissioned by Duruflé’s publisher.
The commission coincided with the
death of Duruflé’s father, to whose
12

memory the work is dedicated.
In setting the words of the Latin
Mass of the Dead, Duruflé chose
to model his work on the beautiful
Requiem by Fauré. Both works differ
strikingly from the grand Requiem
tradition of Mozart, Berlioz, or Verdi.
They were planned on a much smaller
scale, and are predominantly lyrical
rather than dramatic in tone. Both
composers omitted the movement that
is the centerpiece of so many other
settings, the Sequence “Dies irae,” with
its terrifying depiction of the Last
Judgment. If the Requiem is performed
as part of the liturgy, this movement
has to be sung in Gregorian chant.
Duruflé had been immersed in
Gregorian chant since his student
days, and it influenced his musical
style to a great extent. Many of
the Requiem’s themes are actual
chant melodies from the Middle
Ages, embedded in an orchestral
accompaniment influenced by the
impressionistic harmonies and colorful

orchestration of Debussy and Ravel.
Although the tone of the Requiem is
predominantly lyrical, there are a few
dramatic climaxes such as the setting
of the words “libera eas de ore leonis”
(deliver them from the lion’s mouth)
in the third movement. Similarly,
near the end of the fourth-movement
“Sanctus,” Duruflé has the first
sopranos and first tenors ascend to a
high B-flat to be sung in triple forte,
on the words in excelsis (on high).
In addition to the usual movements
of the Requiem Mass (Introit Requiem
aeternam, Kyrie, Offertory Domine
Jesu Christe, Sanctus, Agnus Dei,
Communion Lux aeterna), there are
some movements that are not found
in every requiem. One of these, “Pie
Jesu,” is a quiet song inserted between
the “Sanctus” and the “Agnus,” that
can be performed either by a soloist or
the chorus. In the “Libera me,” Duruflé
hinted at the Sequence he had not set,
since this movement actually contains
the words “Dies irae.” In a gradual
crescendo followed by a decrescendo,
the day of the judgment is evoked in
a flash, but then the music quickly
subsides and the movement ends in a
whisper. (Duruflé seems to have been
partial to quiet endings: every single
movement of the Requiem closes
pianissimo.)
The last movement, “In Paradisum,”
is a short antiphon (a type of chant
originally used to frame psalm
recitations). The melody is Gregorian,
except at the very end, where the
“angelic choir” mentioned in the
text prompted a short homophonic
section (all the choral parts are in
the same rhythm). Duruflé employed
some fairly dissonant 20th-century
harmonies here, but they have a

tender, “velvety” quality and almost
sound like consonances. It is surely no
coincidence that the last word of the
piece is the same as the first: Requiem.

Described as “a fine storyteller” (American
Record Guide), “varied in tone and alive
to feeling” (Fanfare), Stephen Lancaster
(baritone) engages audiences through
diverse repertoire in concert, recital, and
opera. He has been featured in venues
around the world, including Carnegie Hall,
the Kennedy Center, Chicago Cultural
Center, Chiang-Kai Shek Memorial Hall,
Centro Cultural de Belém, Petit Palau de
la Música Catalana, and Vatroslav Lisinski
Concert Hall.

Mr. Lancaster’s recent performance
of the Fauré and Duruflé Requiems at
Carnegie Hall with Distinguished Concerts
International New York “projected the
pathos of the ‘Libera me’ with great
strength” (New York Concert Review). He
also received praise for his performance
of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony with the
South Bend Symphony: “Lancaster’s voice
was wonderful…he held his own against
the orchestra’s full complement of strings
and wind instruments” (South Bend Tribune).
His 2015–16 season includes exciting
new repertoire and venues: Poulenc’s Le
bal masqué on the South Bend Symphony
chamber series, and creating the role of
Jaques in the world premiere of As You
Like It by Roger Steptoe with Opera Notre

the Gstaad New Year Music Festival in
Switzerland, the Festival de Musique
dans le Grésivaudan, and the Festival de
Musique d’Uzerche in France.
A passionate recitalist, Mr. Lancaster
has performed Lieder programs in
Paris and Frankfurt, at the Eure-et-Loir
Festival, and for the Brooklyn Art Song
Society in New York. He recently released
a recording of French art songs with
pianist Martin Katz, Le Menu des Mélodies
(Centaur Records), and his recital on
the Dame Myra Hess Memorial Concert
Series was broadcast live by classical radio
station WFMT.
Born and raised in Canada, Mr. Lancaster
earned certificates in piano and voice from
The Royal Conservatory of Music before
moving to the US. He holds degrees in vocal
performance from the University of Notre
Dame and the University of Michigan and
his teachers have included Judith Haddon,
Caroline Helton, George Shirley, and John
Riley-Schofield. Committed to teaching
as well as performing, he is currently an
associate professor of the practice at the

University of Notre Dame where he heads
the graduate studio in voice. He is also
active in sacred music, serving as associate
organist and choir director at St. David of
Wales Episcopal Church in Elkhart, Indiana.
As keyboardist for the acclaimed
University of Michigan Chamber Choir,
Scott VanOrnum (organ) brings unusual
depth and artistry to ensemble musicmaking. His recent performances
with the U-M Chamber Choir include
a concert tour of Australia and New
Zealand, which culminated with an
invitational appearance at the New
Zealand Choral Federation’s National
Conference. A specialist in continuo
instruments for baroque and early
classical choral repertoire, Mr. VanOrnum
is also keyboardist for the U-M Orpheus
Singers, where he mentors graduate
choral conducting students in conductoraccompanist collaboration. He is also
on the artistic staff of the UMS Choral
Union, for which he served as collaborative

Milhaud’s L’Orestie d’Eschyle. Mr.
VanOrnum is director of music at Knox
Presbyterian Church in Ann Arbor, and is
Adjunct Professor at Schoolcraft College
in Livonia.
A prolific ensemble keyboardist,
Mr. VanOrnum has collaborated in
performance preparation with conductors
Valery Gergiev, Hans Graf, Helmuth
Rilling, Leonard Slatkin, and Michael
Tilson Thomas. Other recent performances
include Lou Harrison’s Concerto for Organ
and Percussion with the U-M Percussion
Ensemble and Joseph Gramley, conductor;
performances of Maurice Duruflé’s
Requiem at the Interlochen Center for the
Arts, the Oberlin Conservatory of Music,
the New Zealand Choral Federation, and
19

St. John’s Episcopal Cathedral Los Angeles;
and J.S. Bach’s monumental St. Matthew
Passion with the Detroit Symphony
Orchestra. Upcoming performances will
include the U-M Men’s Glee Club tour of
South Africa, and Johann Sebastian Bach’s
St. Matthew Passion in Los Angeles.
Mr. VanOrnum has concertized
throughout the US and abroad, including
performances in Germany, Italy, France,
Scotland, Australia, and New Zealand.
He has served on the faculties of U-M’s
All-State Program at Interlochen, the
MPulse Vocal Arts Institute at U-M, and
the Oklahoma Summer Arts Institute
at Quartz Mountain. In addition to
performing and teaching schedules, he
has served on the executive boards of the
Dearborn Symphony Orchestra and the
Ann Arbor and Detroit chapters of the
American Guild of Organists. An honors
graduate of the Interlochen Arts Academy
and recipient of the “United States
Presidential Scholars in the Arts” medal,
Mr. VanOrnum studied organ performance
with David Craighead at the Eastman

Formed in 1879 by a group of local
university and townspeople who gathered
together for the study of Handel’s
Messiah, the UMS Choral Union has
performed with many of the world’s
distinguished orchestras and conductors
in its 137-year history. First led by
Professor Henry Simmons Frieze and then
conducted by Professor Calvin Cady, the
group has performed Handel’s Messiah in
Ann Arbor annually since its first Messiah
performance in December 1879. Based
in Ann Arbor under the aegis of UMS, the
175-voice Choral Union is known for its
definitive performances of large-scale
works for chorus and orchestra.
In May 2015, UMS announced the
20

appointment of Scott Hanoian as the
Choral Union’s new music director and
conductor. Hanoian’s inaugural season
in 2015–16 began by preparing the
chorus for a September performance of
Beethoven’s Choral Fantasy with the Ann
Arbor Symphony Orchestra conducted
by Arie Lipsky. The UMS Choral Union
also joined the Michigan Marching
Band, New York Philharmonic brass,
and conductor Alan Gilbert in a special
halftime show appearance at the Big
House during Homecoming weekend in
October, followed by the annual Messiah
performances in December. In April 2016,
women of the UMS Choral Union will join
both the Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra
and the Detroit Symphony Orchestra
for performances of Holst’s The Planets.
The UMS Choral Union’s season will
end in April by renewing a relationship
with the Toledo Symphony Orchestra
in a performance of Mozart’s Requiem
conducted by Stefan Sanderling at the
Rosary Cathedral.
The UMS Choral Union was a participant
chorus in a rare performance and
recording of William Bolcom’s Songs
of Innocence and of Experience in Hill
Auditorium in April 2004 under the
baton of Leonard Slatkin. The Naxos
recording won four Grammy Awards in
2006, including “Best Choral Performance”
and “Best Classical Album.” Other recent
highlights include a recording project
with the U-M School of Music, Theatre &
Dance’s choral and orchestral ensembles
of a performance of the rarely-heard
Oresteian Trilogy by Darius Milhaud
conducted by Kenneth Kiesler. In May
2013, chorus members joined the Detroit
Symphony and Leonard Slatkin in a
performance of Ives’s Symphony No. 4 as
part of Carnegie Hall’s Spring for Music
festival in New York.
