Welcome to our 39th season and annual Advent concert!

Our choir was formed in 1975 to preserve and publicize Latvian musical culture and tradition with its enormous body of folk song; and, as a concert choir, to encourage and support Latvian and other Baltic composers. Among other activities, we began our tradition of commissioning a new work each year for this concert. Originally a means to support composers in exile, it has become one of the foundations for our partnerships with a new generation of Latvian composers and musical artists in the post-Soviet era. We also welcome Latvians who come here to study and work into our musical family—often bringing vocal skills honed with world-class choirs at home.

This year we premiere Ilona Rupaine’s “Our Lady’s Garden of Lillies,” with lyrics by noted Latgalian poet Broņislava Martužēva as well as texts from the Catholic liturgy and Latvian folk songs. Born in Rēzekne, Latvia, Rupaine’s musical experience spans teaching, producing, and composing. She won her first musical award in 1995 for her choral arrangement of “Moseņ` zeileit` viesti nesa”, a Latgalian folk song. The Latgalian “sound” is a recurring motif throughout her works—many consider Latgalian songs among the most authentic examples of the Latvian folk song tradition. Rupaine credits her inspiration and successes to Latvia's choirs—we are privileged to perform her new cantata today.

Zilveris’ (By Starlight), Lācis’ (Christmas Cantata), and Zemzaris’ (Emmanuel, Thou God on High) works represent past commissions which have since become part of the modern Latvian Christmas concert repertoire.
