“Fields of Gold: Songs in the Key of Hope” brings songs of love, romance, and the promise of spring to audiences in the Princeton area. The program features music from a range of modern composers, including arrangements of songs by Sting, Dolly Parton, and Carly Simon. In this concert, VCNJ also concludes their rendition of Folk Songs of the Four Seasons by Ralph Vaughn Williams with the spring and summer sections of the work.
The texts speak of sky, fields, stars, meadows, birds, rivers, light, merriment, spring, and love. Rob Long, a singer with the chorale, finds the music in the concert to be “both uplifting and sometimes unexpected. Like when a friend gives you a great hug that you didn’t know you needed.” Additional works in the concert include:
- The Birds’ Lullaby by Sarah Quartel
- A Song of Blue by Bob Chilcott
- Lunar Lullaby by Jacob Narverud
- Choose Love by Kyle Pederson
