Hallowed Be Thy Name – A Showcase of Sacred Music


Message from the Vice-Chancellor The Chinese University of Hong Kong

Since its founding in 1972, the Chinese University of Hong Kong Chorus has dedicated itself to promoting the enjoyment and appreciation of choral music of various styles and genres. Its members have performed for different audiences, on campus and in the community. For close to four decades, the CU Chorus has impressed generations of music enthusiasts with its exquisite interpretations of masterworks from its immense Chinese and Western repertoire, building for itself a fine name among academic choirs in the region. At the heart of this success is the commitment and enthusiasm of the chorus members. Tonight the CU Chorus will bring to the audience a memorable and pleasant evening through the rendition of sacred music from the Renaissance to the 21st Century. On this joyous occasion, I congratulate the performers and the organizers on a wellrehearsed programme and wish the concert every success.

Lawrence J. Lau Vice-Chancellor, The Chinese University of Hong Kong

Hallowed Be Thy Name – A Showcase of Sacred Music


香港中文大學合唱團 團長獻辭

Message from the Chairperson The Chinese University of Hong Kong Chorus 每個星期一的傍晚,總會有幾個人在漆黑中提著巨大的電子琴、挽 着厚疊疊的歌譜前往排練目的地,隨後一個一個來自五湖四海 ─ 不 同學系的本科生、不同職業的舊生都來了。排練完畢,我們就會一 邊唱歌,一邊走往火車站,歌聲由山上伸延至山下。 我們來自不同的地方,卻因歌聲而走在一起…… 還記得在去年十二月的台灣交流團:凌晨十二時十五分大家正在房 內閒聊,突然一位團員敲門,進來時他拿著一疊歌譜說:「讓我們 一起背歌吧!」看看牆上的時鐘,幾位團員呆了,卻拿起歌譜,走 到他的房間背歌。交流團的日子,有人唱歌,便會有人和應;由早 上至夜晚,由旅遊車至各個景點…… 為了背好共有六種語言的歌曲,團員不計較自己有多忙碌,迅速 成立了「背譜小組」。縱使困難,大家彼此勉勵、彼此分享心得秘 訣,我們甚至能把整篇近二百字的芬蘭文歌詞全數背默出來。 指揮平日兼顧兩份「工作」:早上七時至傍晚六時是全職教師,晚 上七時至凌晨三時是義務指揮。當上指揮,他沒有收過幾毛錢,每 晚卻為我們在網上找資料預備每次排練、歌詞翻譯、歌曲錄音、研 究歌曲演繹以及討論團內運作。有次清晨五時四十五分在「線上」 遇到他,便問道:「早晨,還不睡覺?」「還未睡,正在聽你們排 練的錄音嘛!」 合唱團的日常事務,以至籌備音樂會工作如預訂場地、籌措資金、 宣傳、出版場刊……全都由團員們一手包辦。由去年開始,大家的 電郵一星期總會有幾天被「猛烈轟炸」。有一晚,我在晚上十一時 回覆電郵後便去睡覺,第二天早上起來(約七時許),竟然收到三十 二封新電郵!記得一位晝夜為團而不眠不休的團員被問及:「真佩 服,為何你仍可活到今天!」她微笑地回答:「能做多少便多少, 在畢業前一定要為團辦點事!」 點點回憶拼在一起,拼成了我們:中大合唱團。一點一滴的心血和 一次又一次的支持鼓勵,造就了今晚我們的歌聲。願大家今晚能在 旋律中感受到我們的熱誠,分享這份喜悅! 香港中文大學合唱團 二零零九至二零一零年度團長 謝穎心

Twice a week, three hours each. Like clockwork, every time before a rehearsal, several people would be seen carrying a massive electric piano to the rehearsal venue. Then one by one, members with different backgrounds come along and join in the singing. We were strangers before, but music has brought us together. 爾名為聖 ─ 宗教音樂巡禮

I recall the time during our Taiwan Tour at the end of 2009, when a member knocked on my door at 12:15 a.m. one night, and asked, “Wanna memorize the lyrics together?” Everybody in my room was shocked, but after a moment some picked up their scores and joined him. Throughout the tour we sang along, from day to night, from one place to another... To better memorize this concert’s songs, which consist of six languages, a group of dedicated members formed the “AP (Annual Performance) Study Group”, despite being busy with academic demands. Honestly, remembering the lyrics is not easy; but after weeks of hard work, some of us can even dictate the whole song of 198 Finnish words from memory alone. This dedication goes for our conductor as well. During the day he is a full time school teacher, but from evening onwards to the small hours, he is our voluntary conductor. His work with us is not paid, yet he spends tons of time and effort in finding the most suitable lyric translations and song recordings for us, and in discussing with the committee members how to better run our chorus. Once, I saw him still online in MSN at 5:45 a.m., so I asked, “Good morning, still working?” “Yes, listening to the recordings from our last rehearsal.” Everything in the chorus is organized and done by our members, including daily operations, venue-booking, finding sponsors, public relations, making the concert programme… Since taking office last year, our emails have been filled with chorus-related discussions and suggestions. One day when a member was asked why she devoted so much to the chorus, she responded, “Just doing my best and contributing the most to Chorus before I graduate!” All these memories come together and create us, the CU Chorus. Effort and passion are always with us; they are what make tonight’s concert a success. Hereby I wish that you would feel our passion and enjoy the melodies tonight! Tse Wing Sum Chairperson (2009 - 2010), The Chinese University of Hong Kong Chorus 5


中大合唱團 2010周年音樂會籌委會 主席獻辭

Message from the Chairperson CU Chorus Concert Organizing Committee 2010 最後,也很感謝入場來觀看音樂會的您。沒有觀眾的參與,我們唱 甚麼也只能自娛,不是分享;多謝您,成全了我們的夢。希望您喜 歡我們的音樂! 香港中文大學合唱團 二零一零周年音樂會籌委會主席 陳蘊明

March 13th is a special day. Special, not only in that it is the night of our long-anticipated concert, but also because it is a night when our dream for the past year can be fulfilled. As a performing group, our goal has always been to share wonderful music with our audience. But to get to that point, we must have immense faith and will.

三月十三日是一個特別的日子。特別,不單因為這晚是我們籌備多 時的音樂會,更因為在這天晚上,我們即將實現我們一年來努力追 求的夢想。 身為表演者,我們的目標當然是要和觀眾分享好的音樂。然而要如 何由零開始,達到這個目標,就必須靠大家的信心和毅力。 信心,是要相信自己的能力,也相信觀眾,而願意付出心力去挑戰 不同的作品。這些作品也許是艱澀的外語,也許手法新奇,也許難 度很高……但因為我們確信只要自己肯用功,就能唱出觀眾能欣賞 的音樂,所以我們有動力每週投放近十小時來練歌,並且在其餘時 間也找不同方法複習,以求更加熟練歌曲。正是有了這些努力,我 們今日才能夠在台上面對觀眾開懷歌唱。 從有了一個理想,到今天結成果實,當中每一步都是靠團員們的努 力和熱誠。我們都有遇到挫折、迷惘的時候,是因為大家有不屈的 毅力,互勵互勉,在困難面前不退縮,我們才能在磨煉中成長。在 此我尤其感激我們的音樂總監和各位音樂會籌委;沒有他們付出大 量的時間和精力,絕不可能有今天的演出。

We need faith in ourselves, and in our audience, to take on the challenges of different pieces. Be they in difficult foreign languages, unorthodox arrangements, or with formidable requirements... as long as we have faith that we can present these pieces well with proper effort, we are motivated to put in long hours of rehearsals, and find ways to further our skills beyond. It is because of these efforts that we can present our programme confidently on stage tonight. From having a vision to its coming to fruitage today, every step of the way is built by the diligence and devotion of our members. We all had moments of being lost and frustrated, but because our collective will is indomitable, we encourage each other on, and come out of trials the better. I am particularly grateful to our Music Director and all the Concert Organizing Committee members; this concert would not have been possible without their endless input of time and effort. Last but not least, I thank you for joining us tonight. We cannot be performers without an audience; it is you who help make our dream a reality. Please enjoy! Chan Wan Ming Chairperson of Concert Organizing Committee 2010, The Chinese University of Hong Kong Chorus

Hallowed Be Thy Name – A Showcase of Sacred Music


香港中文大學合唱團 音樂總監獻辭

Message from the Music Director The Chinese University of Hong Kong Chorus 你相信奇蹟嗎? 九首作品六種語言*,排練時團員叫苦連天,年初首次試背 《……是……的兒子》與《叁佰壹拾》時團員大都痛苦得面容扭 曲,今天大家卻已把大疊的樂譜全啃進腦袋…… 在最早可以遞交申請的時候就入紙租用演出場地卻落得全軍覆沒, 直至去年十二月仍為音樂會場地憂心忡忡時,卻收到通知有人放棄 今天的荃灣大會堂的租用申請,讓我們補上…… 校內擺攤位售票一星期完全無人問津,現在卻是高朋滿座…… 今年是我回歸中大合唱團第五個年頭,今場演出是由我擔任音樂總 監起第四場周年音樂會,還有無數客席演出以至外地演出,奇蹟卻 是一而再三地出現在我們身上。 有說成功靠的是 5%幸運、 5%天份與 90%努力。我們當中不是人人 有天份(尤其是我),所以一起付出了 200%努力 — 為著對合唱、 對音樂、對藝術的熱愛,從九月一直堅持到今天,團員甚至自發組 織額外的排練。然而,沒有那 5%幸運,最後還是不能成事。 可 是 , 我 們 就 是 得 到 看 顧 , 得 著 那 最 後 5% 。 讓 大 家 可 以 安 坐 於 觀 眾座,看我們為大家送上這一系列在香港難得一聽的合唱作品。 我不是基督徒,但我相信奇蹟。你呢? 香港中文大學合唱團 音樂總監兼指揮 朱振威 *致 散場前之讀者:不是八首作品五種語言嗎?完場時你自會知道我沒有數錯。

Do you believe in miracles? Nine pieces in six languages* have given a hard time to the chorus; everyone was miserable when we first rehearsed Which Was the Son of… and CCCX by memory at the beginning of the year. But today, somehow we have stuffed all the scores into our brains...

A whole week of in-campus ticket-selling counter drew little attention, still today the seats are filled with friends... This is my fifth year since returning to CU Chorus, and the fourth annual concert since I became Music Director, in addition to countless guest and overseas performances. Miracles keep happening to us. Some said that success is 5% luck, 5% talent and 90% effort. Not all of us are talented (especially myself), so we have all given 200% effort – for the love of the chorus, of music and of the art, persevering from September till tonight; some members even organized extra rehearsals. And yet without that 5% luck, we still would not have made it. But we are indeed blessed with that remaining 5%, so that all of you can be seated comfortably here to enjoy our programme of choral pieces that the local stage rarely sees. I am not a Christian, but I believe in miracles. Do you?

We handed in hiring applications for concert venues at the earliest opportunity with no success, but in December a notice came in the mid of our worriment: someone had cancelled their application for this auditorium today, so we can reapply from the waiting list...

Leon Chu Music Director and Conductor, The Chinese University of Hong Kong Chorus * F or readers before end of the programme: Isn’t it eight pieces in five languages? You will know I did not miscount at the end of the concert.

香港中文大學合唱團

The Chinese University of Hong Kong Chorus 香港中文大學合唱團於 1972年 12月由一班愛好合唱音樂的中大學生 自發成立。歷經三十多年的光輝歲月,中大合唱團已從一隊為大專 比賽而組成的學生社團,轉變成追求卓越,致力向大眾分享優質合 唱演出的表演團體。 近年,合唱團多次接受傳媒報道。《經濟日報》、《信報》、《明 報》、香港電台等傳媒也對合唱團的周年音樂會作專題介紹。樂評 人李歐梵、周凡夫等也曾在其專欄或電台節目對合唱團演出致予好 評。 2009年,合唱團演唱著名電影《舒特拉的名單》選曲的錄影, 透過 YouTube而大受全球猶太人歡迎,更因此吸引以色列最大報章 《新消息報》報道。 合唱團每年演出包括擔任客席嘉賓,以及主辦周年音樂會等。合唱 團 2006 年 應 邀 到 第 20 屆 澳 門 國 際 音 樂 節 演 出 , 作 首 次 國 際 性 音 樂 節亮相。近年合唱團屢獲邀請到其他學府作交流,曾到上海師範大 學、彰化大葉大學及台北市私立復興實驗高級中學進行示範講座, 介紹香港合唱創作發展,深受當地學生歡迎。 節目創新且多元化,讓合唱團一直走在香港合唱界最前端。合唱 團選曲以帶給觀眾精彩動聽樂曲為主,不拘泥於風格與難度。演唱 過的曲目範圍由貝多芬與馬勒的交響曲到 James Blunt 與鮑比達 的流行曲不等。合唱團多次為新作香港首演以至世界首演,包括松 下耕《若言》、胡銘堯《九肚山下》、蘇梓安《戀之花》及楊嘉輝 《他說》等。

The Chinese University of Hong Kong Chorus was founded in December 1972 by a group of CUHK students who loved singing. In these thirty-odd years, CU Chorus has evolved from a student group united for joint-university competition, into an organization dedicated to pursuing excellence and bringing quality choral performances to local audience.

CU Chorus has participated in various guest performances in addition to CU Chorus annual concerts. In 2006, the chorus was invited to perform in the 20th Macau International Music Festival, its debut in an international music festival. In recent years CU Chorus was invited to many institutes for exchange activities. The chorus had given demonstrative talks on the development of Hong Kong choral music in the exchange activities with Shanghai Normal University, Changhua Da-Yeh University, and Taipei Fuhsing Private School, inspiring great interest in local students.

CU Chorus has received multiple media coverage in recent years. The chorus’s annual concerts had featured in Hong Kong Economic Times, Hong Kong Economic Journal, Ming Pao, and Radio Television Hong Kong. Music critics such as Leo Lee Oufan and Zhou Fanfu had also given favourable comments on CU Chorus’s performances in their column or radio programme. In 2009, the video recording of CU Chorus performing selections from the soundtrack of the famous film “Schindler’s List” had become popular among Jewish people all over the world through YouTube; the incident was even reported in the largest Israeli newspaper, Yedioth Ahronoth.

The innovative and diverse programme has lent CU Chorus an edge among other Hong Kong choral groups. The chorus bases its repertoire on appealing and remarkable songs, regardless of the style or performing difficulty. Songs that CU Chorus has performed range from Beethoven’s and Mahler’s symphonies to pop songs by James Blunt and Chris Babida. The chorus also perform many new pieces, sometimes as their Hong Kong premiere or even world premiere; such pieces include Kotoba ni Sureba by Matsushita Ko, Below the Kau To Shan by Dennis Wu, The Flower of Love by Andy So, and When He Said by Samson Young.

芬蘭作曲家兼合唱指揮家孟提賈維儘管已躋身國際級合唱大師之 列,但他既不是自幼專習音樂,現在也不是以音樂為職業!雖然曾 在西貝流士音樂學院學習音樂理論及合唱指揮,但他在赫爾辛基大 學主修的卻是英文及語言學,畢業後投身翻譯事業。音樂創作是他 的業餘興趣,卻得到空前成就。 《聖母頌》是孟提賈維年青時的作品,寫於 1991年,由薩科萊倫學 生會學生合唱團委約創作。創作時間非常緊逼:只有一個下午的時 間!甫完成晚上就要排練隨即演出。樂曲開始由兩部男低音在低音 區以長音維持一個延綿不絕的完全五度,女聲則吟誦歌詞,然後男 高音在上面唱出模仿格雷果聖歌的旋律,製造出一種古老樸實的感 覺。創作及排練時間的極大限制,反而使孟提賈維巧妙地想出只讓 女聲朗讀歌詞,只由男聲唱出結構簡單音樂的演唱形式,創作出一 部既有前衛音響效果,同時引人聯想到遙遠的中世紀,可見孟提賈 維的天賦才華。 可是,正因為時間不足,孟提賈維後來發現自己在創作時單憑記憶 而填上的古典經文原來有錯漏。不過他並沒有在正式出版時修正, 反而留下這小瑕疵,以紀念這次特殊的創作經驗。

Although Finnish composer and choral conductor Mäntyjärvi has long been considered one of the international masters of choral music, he did not concentrate solely on music as a student, nor does he make a career of music. After having studied for Music Theory and Choral Conducting at Sibelius Academy, he

majored in English and Linguistics at the University of Helsinki, and became a translator after graduation. Music composition is a hobby for him, but a tremendously successful one. Ave Maria was a work of Mäntyjärvi’s youth, commissioned by the Savolaisen Osakunnan Laulajat student choir in 1991. It was composed in an extremely short time - merely one afternoon! The piece was to be rehearsed and performed the very evening of its completion. It begins with two bass voices sustaining a drone bass in parallel fifths with women’s voices chanting the lyrics; then the tenor enters with a Gregorian-style melody, establishing an austere atmosphere. Far from being a crippling constraint, the extremely short composition and rehearsal time inspired Mäntyjärvi to create an ingenious style wherein women’s voices recite only the lyrics, and the men’s voices sing in simple harmony. This piece is both modern in its sound and ancient in its echo of the distant Middle Ages, reflecting Mäntyjärvi’s brilliance. However, due to the rush of its composition, Mäntyjärvi later discovered that the prayer he had quoted from memory as lyrics was incomplete, with one word being added and four words being dropped. He kept these mistakes in the formal published version of the song, as a memorial for its unique composing situation.

蒙台威爾第 Claudio Monteverdi (1567-1643)

向主高歌 Cantate Domino (Latin)

Domino canticum novum, * Cantate cantate et benedicite nomine ejus. Quia mirabilia fecit.

Sing to the Lord a new song, sing and bless His name for He has worked wonders.

你們要向耶和華唱新歌 要向耶和華歌唱、稱頌祂的名 因為祂行過奇妙的事

Cantate et exultate et psallite, psallite in cithara et voce psalmi. Quia mirabilia fecit.

Sing and exult and make music, strike the lyrics and let voices sing, for He has worked wonders.

在大君王耶和華面前歡呼 用琴和詩歌的聲音歌頌祂 因為祂行過奇妙的事

Excerpts from Psalm 96 & 98

節錄自詩篇 96及 98篇

蒙台威爾第生於 16世紀文藝復興時期,是一位意大利的跨時代作曲 家和歌唱家,被後世喻為歌劇之父。由於他的一生橫跨了文藝復興 晚期和之後的巴洛克早期,因此他作品可算集兩家之長。

1620 年 完 成 的 《 向 主 高 歌 》 內 容 取 詞 自 《 聖 經 》 詩 篇 第 96 及 98 篇,提及天地萬物都要歌頌耶和華,因為耶和華行過奇妙的事。 這 首歌屬於典型文藝復興風格,甚具舞蹈性。音樂共分三段:第一段 唱出「你們要向耶和華唱新歌,要向耶和華歌唱、稱頌祂的名」 時,音樂是主調織體的三拍子舞曲,跳脫活潑;第二段「因為祂行 過奇妙的事」,音樂轉變成二拍子的對位慢段落,氣氛變得稍為莊 嚴;第三段「在大君王耶和華面前歡呼,用琴和詩歌的聲音歌頌 祂」,音樂維持在二拍子,但氣氛再次變得充滿跳躍感,對位樂句 此起彼落,有如不同的人先後高聲歡呼。最後第二段落重現,樂曲 在一片詳和中結束。

Monteverdi was born in the 16th century; an accomplished Italian composer and singer, he was later honoured as the Father of Opera. As he bridged late Renaissance and the subsequent early Baroque periods, his works carry stylistic characteristics of both periods. Completed in 1620, Cantate Domino took its lyrics from Psalms 96 and 98 of the Bible. It is a song in classic Renaissance style, with considerable dancing quality, and has the very Baroque addition of an instrumental continuo. The music is stylistically broken into three sections: the first section “Sing to the Lord a new song, sing and bless His name,” is a dance in triple time with homophonic texture, light and lively; the second section “for He has worked wonders” is a slower contrapuntal verse in duple time, and gives a more solemn air; the third section, “Sing and exult and make music, strike the lyrics and let voices sing”, is still in duple time, but once again with a bounce to the music, the counterpoint resembling hails from different people in a crowd. The piece closes with a repetition of the second section, ending the song in a serene tone.

孟德爾遜 Felix Mendelssohn (1809-1847)

普天下當向主歡呼 Jauchzet dem Herrn, alle (German)

dem Herrn, alle Welt! * Jauchzet Dienet dem Herrn mit Freuden; kommt vor sein Angesicht mit Frohlocken!

O be joyful in the Lord, all you lands; Serve the Lord with gladness and come before his presence with a song!

Erkennet, daß der Herr Gott ist! Er hat uns gemacht, und nicht wir selbst zu seinem Volk und zu Schafen seiner Weide.

Be sure that the Lord is God: It is he that has made us and not we ourselves; We are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

Gehet zu seinen Thoren ein mit Danken, zu seinen Vorhöfen mit Loben; danket ihm, lobet seinen Namen!

Go your way into his gates with thanksgiving, And into his courts with praise. Be thankful to him and speak good of his name.

Denn der Herr ist freundlich, und seine Gnade währet ewig und seine Wahrheit für und für.

For the Lord is gracious His mercy is everlasting; And his truth endures from generation to generation. Psalm 100:1–5

《詩篇》在《聖經》中屬詩歌體裁,本來就用來吟唱。所以古今中 外的作曲家在創作聖樂時,大都愛以《詩篇》的篇章作歌詞,例如 之前蒙台威爾第的《向主高歌》,以及這一首由孟德爾遜創作的 《普天下當向主歡呼》。 孟德爾遜於 19世紀初在德國出生,是當今最受歡迎的浪漫時期音樂 家之一。他是一位猶太裔天才作曲家,自小顯露過人的音樂才華, 十一歲開始作曲,此後兩年,他創作了十二首弦樂交響曲。十七歲 時,他完成了著名的劇樂《仲夏夜之夢》,廣為人知的「婚禮進行 曲」即出自此作品。在短短的三十八年生命中,他創作了豐富的作 品,包括交響樂、聖樂、鋼琴和合唱作品等,曲風既保留了古典時 期的嚴謹,別具創意及詩意的創作風格卻證明他沒有落後於當時方 興未艾的浪漫風潮。

16

是次演出的《普天下當向主歡呼》約於 1842年寫成,以德文版本的 《詩篇》第 100篇作歌詞。孟德爾遜非常崇拜「音樂之父」巴赫, 所以觀眾不難從曲中的對位以及聖詠式齊唱中見到巴赫的影子。 全曲分為三大段落,引子是猶如鼓號曲一般的一句「普天下當向耶 和華歡呼」開始,既莊嚴且引人注目。隨後「你們當曉得耶和華 是神」則變得恭敬內斂,當四聲部輪流唱出「我們是祂造的,也是 屬祂的,我們是祂的民,也是祂草場的羊」,像是世人輪流讚美上 主。中間慢段落氣氛變得莊嚴神聖,以表達出面對上主,「當稱謝 進入祂的門」的謙卑。最後段落「因為耶和華本為善」,音樂變得 充滿喜樂,女高音與男低音在不同的過渡位置都要維持長音,加上 不斷重複,使音樂切實地表達出上主的慈愛與信實,是存到永遠, 直到萬代。

e Welt 普天下當向耶和華歡呼 你們當樂意事奉耶和華 當來向祂歌唱 你們當曉得耶和華是神 我們是祂造的 也是屬祂的,我們是祂的民 也是祂草場的羊 當稱謝進入祂的門 當讚美進入祂的院 當感謝祂、稱頌祂的名 因為耶和華本為善 祂的慈愛、存到永遠 祂的信實、直到萬代 詩篇 100篇 1–5節

In the Bible, psalms are a form of poem, which, by their very nature, are meant to be sung; this is why composers past and present have always liked to take the lyrics of their sacred music pieces from the Psalms. Examples include the previous Cantate Domino, and here, Jauchzet dem Herrn, alle Welt. Mendelssohn has become one of today’s most popular Romantic period composers. He was born in Germany in the early 19th century. As a child prodigy in composition, he showed his talent as early as age 11 when he started writing music; in the following two years he composed 12 string symphonies. When he was 17, he completed the incidental music for Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and we still use the familiar “Wedding March” to this day. In his brief life of 38 years, he composed a vast collection of works, including symphonies, sacred music, piano, and choral pieces. His style retains the precision of the Classical period, but with an innovative and poetry that shows his anticipation of the coming Romantic style.

爾名為聖 ─ 宗教音樂巡禮

Jauchzet dem Herrn, alle Welt was completed around 1842, using the German version of Psalm 100 for the lyrics. The counterpoint and chorale-like passages in this piece are reminiscent of Bach’s work, as the Father of Music was Mendelssohn’s idol. The three verses of the song can be divided into four sections, opening with the regal and dramatic fanfarelike “O be joyful in the Lord, all you lands”. The following line, “Be sure that the Lord is God”, is more reverent and reserved in comparison, with four parts singing “It is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; We are his people, and the sheep of his pasture” in turns, as if people are voicing praises successively. In the slower middle verse, the atmosphere becomes solemn and sacred, as befitting the humility as one comes before God: “Go your way into his gates with thanksgiving”. The last verse, “For the Lord is gracious”, is joyful, with soprano and tenor in a very hymn-like setting, which embodies the endless mercy and faithfulness of God.

同的變化。當歌詞提到個別在猶太歷史中重要的人物(如阿伯拉 罕)時,帕特都會利用音樂強調他們的名字。 《……是……的兒子》是帕特於 2000年創作的作品,歌詞出奇地取 自《聖經》路加福音第三章二十三至三十八節。這幾節《聖經》所 記述的是耶穌的家譜,由耶穌開始往上查考,最後追朔到亞當,而 亞當正是由神所創造。當年的委約,首演團體是由歐洲多國青年組 成的「歐洲之聲」,或許帕特由此得到靈感,希望借這段可能從未 得作曲家垂青的經文,提醒我們千萬年前原是一家,大家都是神的 兒女 ─ 以宗教的角度,宣揚友愛與和平。

After enduring years of oppression, Pärt moved to the former West Germany in 1980, and only returned to Estonia about ten years ago.

These verses record the lineage of Jesus, tracing it all the way back to Adam, who was created by God Himself. The commissioned work was premiered by the Voices of Europe, with singers come from different countries; perhaps this was what inspired Pärt to choose the thenuntouched text, to remind people that we are ultimately from the same family, all of us the children of God – a message of Love and Peace from a religious perspective.

叁佰壹拾 CCCX (Finnish)

Jeesus kun täällä vain kanssamme on, * Herra emme kauhistu vastustajaamme. Viha vaikka on vastaamme sammumaton, niin me turvaamme puolustajaamme. Vaikka kaita on tie ja se taisteluun vie, meille Jeesus on turva ja kilpi. Siis me uskossa vaan käymme taistelemaan. Pyhä on tämä tie, pois jo vilppi.

Siis te Jeesuksen ystävät armoitetut, kaikki uskossa vaeltakaatte. Luja toivonne olkoon, te ahdistetut, vaikka kiusoja, vaivoja saatte. Teillä auttaja on, apu ahdinkohon tätä tietänne kulkiessanne. Hän on armollinen, hän on uskollinen. Pysykää yhä Jeesuksessanne.

When Lord Jesus is with us here, We shall not fear our Foe. Though Anger unslaking be against us, We shall trust in our Defender. Though the Way is narrow and leadeth to Jesus is our Strength and Shield. We shall join Battle in Faith. Our Way is holy and free of Wrong-doing.

Vihamies kuka voittaisi sankarin sen, kuka voittaisi Golgatan Herran? Taisteluissa hän linna on turvallinen, hän on voittanut saatanan kerran. Jos me joudummekin syvihin vesihin, ratki keskelle kuoleman kauhun, emme nääntyä voi, hänen äänensä soi läpi myrskyn ja helvetin pauhun.

Kun me heikkoina Herralle huokaamme vaan, Pyhä Henkensä auttaa jo meitä. Uni meitä kun pyrkivi ahdistamaan, meitä Herra ei nukkumaan heitä. Kun me uuvumme niin, ettei rukouksiin eikä valvomiseen ole voimaa, hän on puolustaja, esirukoilija, eikä heikkoja, huonoja soimaa.

What Foe could vanquish that Hero, Who could defeat the Lord of Calvary? In Battle He is a safe Stronghold, He hath triumphed over Satan. Even if we find ourselves in deep Waters, In the midst of the Fear of Death, We cannot fail, for His Voice resoundeth Through the Noise of Storm and Hell.

Ota kuoleman vallan jo taitettu on ja on riistetty helvetin voitto. Elon ruhtinas Jeesus on voittamaton, jo on valjennut autuuden koitto. Hänen kunniataan, hänen kirkkauttaan me nyt kiittäen veisaelkaamme. Meille voiton hän toi, lunastuksensa soi, hänen kauttaan me autuuden saamme.

《 叁 佰 壹 拾 》 創 作 於 2000, 是 為 了 赫 爾 辛 基 大 學 神 學 院 畢 業 典禮而寫。作曲家後來陸續創作一系列歌曲,組成了合唱劇場 《 Salvat 1701》。

The Sting of Death is removed, And Triumph is snatched from Hell. Jesus is the invincible Prince of Life, And the Dawn of Bliss is come. Let us sing the Praises Of His Glory and Brightness. He hath brought us Victory and Redemption, Through Him we are blessed.

的新派技巧。孟提賈維說自己是一位「兼收並蓄的傳統主義者」, 這部以傳統手法創作卻聽來像是走在時代尖端的舊歌新編,足證所 言非虛!儘管他曾戲言「兼收並蓄」是因為他愛抄襲,「傳統主義 者」是因為他只喜歡傳統的三音和弦……

《叁佰壹拾》是孟提賈維將芬蘭傳統聖詩《當主與我們同在》改編 而成,而將歌名題為《叁佰壹拾》,是因為《當主與我們同在》一 曲在芬蘭教會的聖詩歌集中是第 310首而已。《當主與我們同在》 是一首典型芬蘭詩歌,莊嚴之中帶點憂鬱。原曲為同一旋律配上八 段歌詞,孟提賈維只取了第一、二、三、五、六五段。孟提賈維完 全維持了詩歌原來的旋律,僅靠編排其他伴唱作出令人目眩的變 化。歌曲充滿前衛音響,尤其最後一段「當我們在脆弱當中向主耶 穌嘆息」。可是,作曲家採用的創作技巧如平行(同調性及不同調 性)、持續長音、卡農等,全都來自民歌以及傳統音樂,而非複雜

Therefore, ye blessed Friends of Jesus, Go your Way in Faith. May your Hope be strong, ye who are oppressed, Though ye may be visited with Pain and Strife. Ye have a Helper, an Aid in Anguish Upon this Way ye Wander. He is merciful, He is loyal. Keep to your Jesus. When we sigh unto the Lord in our Weakness, His Holy Spirit doth aid us. When our very Dreams trouble us, The Lord will not let us sleep alone. When we grow weary and have no Strength To pray or to watch and wake, He shall be our Defender and pray for us, And not chastise the Weak and the Wanting.

當主耶穌與我們同在, 我們不會恐懼我們的仇敵。 雖然不安的憤怒侵襲我們, 我們將信任我們的保護者。 雖然引到永生的路很狹窄, 但耶穌是我們的力量和盾牌, 我們要帶著信心加入爭戰。 我們的道路聖潔,遠離不義。 甚麼仇敵可能勝過那個得勝的, 誰能擊敗髑髏地的主? 祂在爭戰中是一個安穩的營壘, 祂向撒旦誇勝! 即使我們身在深水中, 或是被死亡的威脅籠罩, 為了祂再來的聲音, 我們在暴風和陰間的呼喊中不可以退後。 去除了死亡的痛苦, 並且戰勝了陰間。 主耶穌是永遠得勝的生命之主, 極樂的黎明已到。 讓我們歌頌 祂的榮耀和光明。 祂為我們帶來了勝利和豐盛, 主耶穌保守了我們。

CCCX (310 in Roman numerals) was composed in 2000 for the graduation ceremony of the Faculty of Theology of the University of Helsinki. Mäntyjärvi later continued it into a series, the choral drama SALVAT 1701. CCCX is a remake of the traditional Finnish hymn When the Lord Jesus is with us; the simplified name CCCX arose from the fact that When the Lord Jesus is with us is the 310th song in the Finnish church hymn book. When the Lord Jesus is with us is a typical Finnish hymn, solemn and with a touch of melancholy. The original song consists of eight verses with the same melody, where Mäntyjärvi only adapted the first, second, third, fifth and sixth verses into his version. Mäntyjärvi kept the entire original

The sound effects of the song are very modern, especially for the last verse “When we sigh unto the Lord in our Weakness”. Yet the compositional techniques, such as parallel motion (diatonic or in dissonance), drone bass, canon, etc., are all rooted in folk song and classical music instead of complicated avant-garde techniques. Mäntyjärvi described himself as an “eclectic traditionalist” and this very modern remix achieved with traditional methods is proof indeed! The composer himself jokes that he is eclectic because he steals elements from others’ works, and that he is traditionalist only because he likes triads…

《走向耶路撒冷》是一首節奏明快的黑人靈歌,經美國合唱指揮名 家拉爾丁重新編撰為合唱作品。內容引自《聖經》啟示錄二十一 章︰使徒約翰在異像中看見了新天新地和新耶路撒冷,暗示約翰已 看到神為信徒預備的地方是甚麼模樣。歌詞多次重覆的句子「我要 預備好像約翰一樣走向耶路撒冷」表明信徒可以約翰為榜樣,忠心 服侍神,就可以進入「新耶路撒冷」。 靈歌流行於黑人群體,既可以給人朝氣勃勃、充滿希望的感覺,也 可以表達壓逼中仍堅守信念的苦痛。靈歌本是十九世紀時由黑奴誦 唱,用以在艱辛的工作中提升士氣,後來基督教元素漸漸融入靈歌 中,致使現在大部分的靈歌都帶有基督教訊息。拉爾丁編曲時,加 入了很多現代黑人音樂的元素,例如福音音樂、藍調,甚至是 hiphop!所以聽來時代感十足,而且令人興奮。

預備好,預備好 我要預備好 像約翰一樣走向耶路撒冷 我要預備好 上帝,我要沿著那條路走下去 我要預備好 上帝,我要去試穿那件長袍 你知道我要預備好 像約翰一樣走向耶路撒冷

當彼得於五旬節講道時 將要像約翰一樣走向耶路撒冷 你知道他全身被聖靈充滿 像約翰一樣走向耶路撒冷 我要預備好踏上旅途 得好好預備 我要預備好披上我的長袍 得好好預備 我要預備好去取得我的王冠 得好好預備上路 我已預備好要漫步,我已預備好要邁步 我已預備好像約翰一樣走向耶路撒冷

我要一直走 哪怕步履踉蹌 哪怕腳步蹣跚 哪怕因為雙腳倦怠 而要俯身四肢爬行 你知道我還是會走下去 就像約翰一樣 你知道我要預備好 像約翰一樣走下去

Walk in Jerusalem is a lively-paced negro spiritual piece, rearranged into choral version by Rardin. The lyrics come from the Bible, Revelation 21, where Apostle John saw the holy city of New Jerusalem in a prophecy, implying that he had seen the Promised Land. In the song the repeated line “I want to be ready to walk in Jerusalem just like John” affirms that when disciples follow the example of John and serve God faithfully, they too can enter New Jerusalem.

翻譯:汪然

changed the work songs to spirituals and now we treasure the songs as fervent religious expression. In his arrangement, Rardin also incorporated a number of modern African-American music elements, for example gospel music styles, the blues, and even hip-hop, resulting in this contemporary and invigorating piece.

The spiritual was a popular religious song style begun by black slaves in America. It can be delightful, hopeful, and, at the same time, expressing suffering while maintaining faith under oppression. Work songs were originally sung by black American slaves in the 19th century as a means to raise morale during harsh hours of labor, gradually, the addition of religious elements

卡亞比亞 Ryan Cayabyab (b. 1954)

聖芳濟禱文 Prayer of St Francis of Assisi make me an instrument of your peace; * Lord, where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; where there is sadness, joy;

主啊!讓我做你的工具,去締造和平: 在有仇恨的地方,播送友愛; 在有冒犯的地方,給予寬恕; 在有疑慮的地方,激發信心; 在有失望的地方,喚起希望; 在有黑暗的地方,放射光明; 在有憂傷的地方,散佈喜樂;

O divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console; to be understood, as to understand; to be loved, as to love; for it is in giving that we receive, it is in pardoning that we are pardoned, and it is in dying that we are born again, to Eternal Life.

神聖的導師! 願我不求他人的安慰, 只求安慰他人; 不求他人的諒解,只求諒解他人; 不求他人的愛護,只求愛護他人; 因為只有在施與中,我們有所收穫; 在寬恕時,我們得到寬恕; 在死亡時,我們生於永恆!

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.

主啊!讓我做你的工具,去締造和平。

天主教聖徒阿西西的聖芳濟是著名的禱告者,相傳他在七百多年前 寫 下 這 首 禱 文 , 可 是 一 直 到 1912 年 , 這 禱 文 刊 在 法 國 的 宗 教 刊 物 上,才漸被流傳,所以也有人認為是後人假託其名字的作品。至於 真正使它變成人所皆知的禱文的,要數美國紐約教區主教斯貝爾曼 樞機主教和霍克思議員,他們在第二次世界大戰印製了數百萬本聖 芳濟禱文派發給大眾,安慰了無數人的心靈。

禱文內容表示禱告者身處仇恨、迷惑和傷害中,但他仍然祈求主給 他平安和愛心,以寬恕、諒解和愛去面對生命中的困難。卡亞比亞 編排了男女聲以意大利語及英語兩個版本的歌詞作對答,隨著樂曲 的發展,兩把聲音慢慢融合為一。聽眾在卡亞比亞精心編寫的優美 旋律帶領下,可感受到禱文帶給人安慰、平靜的力量。

無 數 作 曲 家 曾 為 此 禱 文 譜 曲 , 本 團 2007 年 周 年 音 樂 會 《 戰 . 和 . 平》也曾演出香港年青作曲家胡銘堯創作的拉丁語版本,至於是次 演出的版本則由菲律賓著名作曲家卡亞比亞創作。卡亞比亞是菲律 賓的音樂鬼才,既是指揮、作曲家,同時又是鋼琴好手和歌唱家, 作品類別由流行曲與電影配樂到芭蕾舞劇及彌撒曲不等,非常廣 泛。他在 24歲時就成為菲律賓十大傑出青年。不論在菲國或是其他 國家,卡氏的演出和才華皆非常出眾,他曾與超過二十個音樂團體 合作,又於世界各地作無數演出。

St. Francis of Assisi was a 13th-century cleric who is credited as the author of this invocation from over 700 years ago. It wasn’t until the early 20th century that it really became famous after it was printed in a French spiritual magazine in 1912. There remains some controversy over the real authorship. Nevertheless, the prayer became very well-known by the mid20th century when millions of copies were distributed during World War II by the Archbishop of New York and a US Senator, offering solace to numerous people. Many composers have written pieces setting this prayer (for example CU Chorus has performed a Latin version of the prayer created by local composer Dennis Wu in our Annual Concert 2007 entitled “War . Peace”). The version to be performed tonight was written by renowned Filipino composer Ryan Cayabyab. He is an ingenious musician and not only is he a 爾名為聖 ─ 宗教音樂巡禮

conductor and composer but also a master pianist and singer. His works are very diverse, ranging from pop songs and film soundtracks to ballets and masses. At age 24, he was one of the “Ten Outstanding Young Persons” awardees in the Philippines. Cayabyab’s talent and performances are unparalleled inside the Philippines and beyond; he has worked with over 20 music groups, and performed in places all over the world. In the song, the prayer asks God for peace and compassion even in the face of hatred, doubt, and injury, vowing to counter the troubles of life with understanding, love, and pardon. Cayabyab arranged for men’s and women’s voices to sing the Italian and English versions of the lyrics alternately, eventually fusing the two together, delivering peace and tranquility with the beautiful melody.

契爾考特 Bob Chilcott (b. 1955)

小爵士彌撒 A Little Jazz Mass (Latin)

* I. Kyrie

Kyrie eleison. Christe eleison. Kyrie eleison. II. Gloria Gloria in excelsis Deo. Et in terra pax Hominibus bonae voluntatis. Laudamus te. Benedicimus te, adoramus te. Glorificamus te. Gratias agimus tibi Propter magnam gloriam tuam, Domine Deus, Rex caelestics, Deus Pater omnipotens. Domine Fili unigenite, Jesu Christe, Domine Deus, Agnus Dei, Filius Patris.

Qui tollis peccata mundi, Miserere nobis; Qui toollis peccata mundi, Suscipe deprecationem nostram. Qui sedes ad dexteram Patris, Miserere nobis. Quoniam tu solus Sanctus, tu solus Dominus, Tu solus Altissimus, Jesu Christe, Cum Sancto Spiritu: in Gloria Dei Patris. Amen. III. Sanctus Sanctus, Sanctus, Sanctus Dominus, Deus Sabaoth. Pleni sunt caeli et terra Gloria tua. Hosanna in excelsis.

契爾考特是英國炙人口熱的合唱作曲家,同時他也擅長指揮合唱 團。契氏自小接觸音樂,他在著名無伴奏合唱組合「國王歌手」擔 任男高音達 12年之久。自 1997年起,契氏離團獨立發展成為全職作 曲家及指揮家。他擅長編寫青少年合唱作品,至今作品已逾百首, 在北美洲及歐洲廣泛流傳,為合唱團和聽眾所喜愛。現在,他是英 國廣播公司歌手的客席指揮,同時也應邀指揮多個高水準合唱團, 如世界青年合唱團、台北室內合唱團及紐西蘭青少年合唱團等。 《小爵士彌撒》是契氏的得意之作,由美國新奧爾良兒童合唱團委 約創作。原為童聲合唱作品,後來合唱部分經稍微修訂,成為現在 演出的混聲合唱版本,於世界各地被廣泛演出。契爾考特把爵士樂 與宗教合唱巧妙地接合起來,一新觀眾耳目。 這部作品的內容取自天主教的彌撒禮儀程序。每個樂章都有特定的 禮儀功能,所以數百年來作曲家為個別段落所譜寫的音樂,都表達 著相似情緒與氣氛。可是契爾考特出奇卻為部份歌詞搭上看似風馬 26

IV. Benedictus Benedictus, qui venit In nomine Domini Hosanna in excelsis. V. Agnus Dei Agnus Dei, Qui tollis peccata mundi: Miserere nobis. Agnus Dei, Qui tollis peccata mundi: Miserere nobis. Agnus Dei, Qui tollis peccata mundi: Dona nobis pacem.

牛不相及的音樂風格,然而,作曲家正是借此反傳統的手法,為古 老的歌詞帶出全新的面貌與含義,充份發揮契爾考特的無盡創意。 五個樂章的簡介: 〈垂憐頌〉 第一個樂章只用了原來經文的兩句歌詞:「上主求你垂憐,基督求 你垂憐。」音樂卻是佻皮輕鬆(速度指示寫著「 Easy Tempo」), 顯出對契爾考特來說,渴求上主垂憐不一定沉重。 〈榮耀頌〉 一如其他作曲家的榮耀頌,契爾考特以快板的音樂提升觀眾情緒, 貼題地表達了歌者榮耀上帝的興奮。中間一段,則是內斂含蓄的求 主傾聽。結尾歌頌上主再用了開始刺激的快板音樂,表現出讚美上 主的興奮。

歌詞及樂曲介紹 Lyrics and Programme Notes

I. Kyrie Lord have mercy. Christ have mercy. Lord have mercy. II. Gloria Glory to God in the highest. And on earth peace to all those of good will. We praise you. We bless you. We worship you. We glorify you. We give thanks to thee according to the great glory. Lord God, Heavenly King, God the Father almighty. Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son, Lord God, Lamb of God, Son of the Father.

You who takes away the sins of the world, Have mercy upon us. You who takes away the sins of the world, Receive our prayer. You who sit at the right hand of the Father, have mercy on us. For You alone are holy. You alone are the Lord. You alone are the most high, Jesus Christ. With the Holy Spirit in the glory of God the Father. Amen. III. Sanctus Holy, Holy, Holy Lord God of Hosts. Heaven and earth are full of Your glory. Hosanna in the highest.

IV. Benedictus Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest V. Agnus Dei Lamb of God, Who takes away the sins of the world, have mercy upon us. Lamb of God, Who takes away the sins of the world, have mercy upon us. Lamb of God, Who takes away the sins of the world, grant us peace.

〈聖哉曲〉 一般來說,作曲家為聖哉曲所創作的音樂多是莊嚴而歡欣,可是契 爾考特卻要合唱團以平靜而緩慢的方式唱出「聖哉,萬軍之主,你 的榮耀充滿天地,和撒那,為至高者讚美。」這樣的讚美反而表現 出真心誠意。 〈迎主曲〉 跟〈垂憐頌〉一樣,速度指示同樣是「 Easy Tempo」。以爵士的搖 擺感覺,輕輕唱出迎接主的快樂,這份快樂,是欣喜而絕不放肆。 四聲部先輪唱後齊唱,就如不同的人先後加入,齊來頌唱。 〈羔羊經〉 藍調最早源頭可追溯至美國黑奴在田野工作的呼號聲,而早期藍調 歌曲的歌詞多是關於在逼迫之中如何堅忍面對。契爾考特將〈羔羊 經〉配成藍調風格,令這段經文變成猶如來自靈魂深處的呼叫。

Bob Chilcott is a much-admired British choral composer and a talented conductor. He has studied music since he was young and, later, he was a tenor in the famous a cappella choral group the King’s Singers for 12 years; he became a full-time composer and conductor in 1997. Chilcott is famed for his compositions for children’s choirs; to date he has over 100 well-loved pieces performed round the world. At present he is the guest conductor of the BBC Singers. He has been invited to conduct outstanding choirs from all over the world, such as the World Youth Choir, Taipei Chamber Singers, and Tower New Zealand Youth Choir. A Little Jazz Mass was commissioned by the New Orleans Children’s Chorus. Originally a piece designed for children’s voice, this masterpiece is here adapted for mixed choir and in this form has been widely performed across the world. Chilcott merges jazz with chorale in this piece, bringing to stage a revolutionary take on sacred music.

IV. 迎主曲 奉祢名而來的, 是應當稱頌的 V. 羔羊經 上帝的羔羊, 除去世人罪的主, 憐憫我們。 上帝的羔羊, 除去世人罪的主, 憐憫我們。 上帝的羔羊, 除去世人罪的主, 賜我們平安。

The lyrics come from the Ordinary (daily) sections of the Catholic mass. Since the individual sections have their specific functions in the mass, they were always composed with similar atmosphere and moods, which for centuries were varied but unchanged in essence. In this radical rethinking, however, Chilcott matched the lyrics with an innovative music style. It was through this unorthodox method that he brought new outlooks and meanings to the ancient texts. A brief introduction to the five movements of A Little Jazz Mass : Kyrie The first movement only consists of two lines from the original three-line prayer, “Lord have mercy. Christ have mercy.” sung over blithe, cheerful music (marked as “Easy Tempo”), showing Chilcott’s interpretation that pleading for God’s mercy does not have to be grave.

Hallowed Be Thy Name – A Showcase of Sacred Music


歌詞及樂曲介紹 Lyrics and Programme Notes

Gloria The Gloria is in a brisk Allegro tempo to boost the mood, aptly reflecting the singers’ excitement over the glory of God. The middle verse, in contrast, is much more reticent and modest as the singers ask God to receive their prayers. The end verse is once again in an animated Allegro, rejoicing in singing praises to the Lord. Sanctus In general, the music for the Sanctus is joyful and majestic; however in Chilcott’s creation, the lines “Holy, Lord God of Hosts. Heaven and earth are full of thy glory. Hosanna in the highest.” are sung in a tranquil and unhurried fashion, the praise sincerely meant in its understated presentation.

爾名為聖 ─ 宗教音樂巡禮

Benedictus As in the Kyrie, this section is marked “Easy Tempo”. The pleasure in God’s coming is demonstrated in the airy swings of jazz music, delightful but never extravagant. The four voices first sing in turn and then in unison, like different people joining in to sing the praises of God. Agnus Dei The earliest blues can be traced back to black slaves’ songs as they labored in the fields of America, and many of their lyrics are about how to stay steadfast in the face of oppression. Chilcott’s arrangement of this prayer in blues style makes the Agnus Dei a plea from the depth of one’s soul.
