Pietà Signore Attributed to Alessandro Stradella (1643-1682)
Tess Altiveros, Soprano Alan Futterman, Piano Pietà, Signore, di me dolente! Signor, pietà, se a te giunge il mio pregar; non mi punisca il tuo rigor, meno severi, clementi ognora, volgi i tuoi sguardi sopra di me, ecc. Non fia mai che nell'inferno sia dannato nel fuoco eterno dal tuo rigor. Gran Dio, giammai sia dannato nel fuoco eterno dal tuo rigor. Have mercy, Lord, on me in my remorse! Lord, have mercy if my prayer rises to you; do not chastise me in your severity, less harshly, always mercifully, look down on me. Never let me be condemned to hell in the eternal fire by your severity. Almighty God, never let me be condemned to hell in the eternal fire by your severity.
Gaudete (1581) Anonymous Bremerton WestSound Symphony and Chorale
Gaudete is a sacred Christmas carol, thought to have been composed in the 16th century. It was published in Piae Cantiones, a collection of Finnish/Swedish sacred songs from 1581. Bremerton WestSound Symphony and Chorale This performance was inspired by Dr. Mark Herring of Eugene, Oregon. Latin English Gaudete, gaudete! Rejoice, rejoice! Christus est natus Christ is born Ex Maria virgine, Of the Virgin Mary – gaudete! Rejoice! Tempus adest gratiæ Hoc quod optabamus, Carmina lætitiæ Devote reddamus. The time of grace has come— What we have wished for; Songs of joy Let us give back faithfully. Deus homo factus est Natura mirante, Mundus renovatus est A Christo regnante. God has become man, With nature marveling, The world has been renewed By the reigning Christ. Ezechielis porta Clausa pertransitur, Unde lux est orta Salus invenitur. The closed gate of Ezekiel Is passed through, Whence the light is risen; Salvation has been found. Ergo nostra contio Psallat iam in lustro; Benedicat Domino: Salus Regi nostro. Therefore, let our assembly Now sing in brightness Let it bless the Lord: Salvation to our Kin

Text In arboris empiro prospere virginitas sedet puerpere mediatrix fides in medio cum stipite cecata ratio insecuta septem sororibus sophismata sua foventibus hec ut scandat dum magis nititur debilitas ramorum frangitur petat ergo fidei dexteram vel eternam nitetur perperam. At the top of the tree virginity sits pleasantly, bearing a child. At the middle is mediating faith. while at the foot, blind reason. followed by her seven sisters (the liberal arts) dwelling on their sophistries. tries to climb in order to shine more brightly. but the weakness of the branches (causes her) to be dashed to the ground. Thus either she asks for the hand of faith. or strives eternally in vain
Fenice Fu by Jacobo da Bologna (1340?-1386)
Fenice fu is a beautiful madrigal by Jacobo da Bologna who worked in Florence from approx. 1340 - 1360. Members of the Bremerton WestSound Symphony and Chorale Carly Ann Worden, Soprano LeeAnne Campos, Mezzo Alan Futterman, Lute and Mandolin Fenice fu' e vissi pura e morbida. e or sun trasmutata in una tortora che volo con amor per le bele ortora. Arbore secho mai n'aqua torbida no' me deleta may per questo dubito, va ne l'astate l'inverno viene subito. Tal vissi et tal me vivo e posso scrivere ch'a dona non è più che honestà vivere. Once I was a phoenix, my life was pure and tender; this hour I am transmuted into a turtledove who flies with love through the beautiful orchards. I can never be pleased by a withered tree or muddied water. On account of these qualms: summer goes, and winter comes at once. Thus I lived and thus I live, and I can write that nothing is better for a woman than an honest life.
Trotto, an Italian 14th Century dance, featuring many members of the Bremerton WestSound Symphony. Trotto in Italian is the same as trot in English. “The trot is a two-beat diagonal gait of the horse ... the speed averages 8 miles per hour.” Have you tried walking at eight miles per hour? This is not as frenetic as the Tarantella but still fast enough for a rollicking good time. Here, we have split up the orchestra so that verse 1 features the reeds, verse 2 features the flutes, verse 3 highlights the strings, and verse 4 has the full ensemble in a virtual party that resembles a barely controlled charivari. Imagine one of Boccaccio's Bacchanals in approximately 1350. For the full effect, use headphones. Enjoy!
