It has been a tough year for Hong Kongers. We have experienced disappointment, struggles and hopelessness in the first stage of 2022. Now with the year closing, we are still trying hard to recover from the pandemic under lots of uncertainties, but with persistence and dignity.

2022 is the 10th anniversary of SingFest, and for sure it is an unforgettable year. The year started with the suspension of “Brahms in Black Box - ” in January due to COVID. We then overcame numerous challenges that arose with our “Germany Tour 2022 ” in April (a special shoutout to our mighty SingFest adminis trative colleagues who devoted themselves wholeheartedly during the whole tour, not to mention the time difference between Hong Kong and Germany). After a long wait of nearly a year and finally having the chance to meet Hong Kong audience again in theatre , 2 out of 3 performances of the "Buxtehude in Black Box: ” in July were rescheduled due to typhoon. All that being said, we are always grateful for the unwavering support from our audience, fueling us with positive energy to never give up.

The theme of our concert tonight, , translates as “My Hope, My Joy”. It also echoes to the title of our originally-planned choral theatre performance in Janu ary, , which translate as “My Song, My Light”. Music always brings light to our hearts, and despite all the hardships and frustration we face in life, may the light keep glowing and bring hope and joy to us all.

Many pieces and composers in our programme tonight may be unfamiliar to you (and to be honest, even to our team at first!). To explore something unfamiliar requires lots of courage, but I am truly thankful that in choral music, we could go through this process as a team. By studying these “hidden gems”together, we share our lives during the process. Tonight, we share what we have with you, and we invite you to embrace the light through music. With the Christmas season approaching, we wish you feel the warmth of Christmas with our reper toire choice tonight.

The motet, , by J. S. Bach (don’t mix up with J. C. Bach!) in tonight’s programme, is a piece that is paramount to the growth of SingFest. We have performed it various times in concert setting, and we even tried stag ing it as a performance of “choral theatre”. The discovery of new elements every time we revisit the music is a testa ment to how we experience hope and joy by witnessing our growth as a team and family.

Thank you all for coming to the concert, and let us embark upon this journey of hope and joy.

前言 — 林浩恩,聲蜚合唱節音樂總監 相信2022年對很多香港人來說都是心情複雜的一年。在年初疫情極度嚴重的時候,大 家也都經歷過失望、掙扎、無助。到了今天,大家都仍咬緊牙關,在一切未知下尋找 方法嘗試「復常」。要面對所有發生的事,心中少一點堅持也不行。 今年是聲蜚成立十周年,而一切發生的都很刻骨銘心。原定計劃於一月初在劇場上演 的布拉姆斯黑盒劇場《星落有時》,因突然閉館需要重新籌劃;到四月我們有幸前往 德國參與巴赫劇場《聖約翰受難曲》的交流演出,在充滿迴響的演出背後,其實不論 台上台下,皆有無盡因疫情而衍生的困難。在此感謝台前幕後不眠不休 (特別在時差底 下) 為藝術而犧牲。然後好不容易到七月的布克斯特胡德黑盒劇場《寂療之境》,終於 可以跟香港觀眾於劇場見面,正式演出首天竟因颱風來襲,影響演出時間有變,感激 觀眾對我們不離不棄的支持。 因此,今天的音樂會我們以《迎.光》為題,希望跟觀眾分享我們今年在眾多挑戰和 未知當中努力尋找出路、迎來光明的心境。我們在2022年1月初原本在劇場上演的合 唱劇場,德語名稱為《Meine Lieder, mein Licht》,意思是「我的歌,我的光」,我們 希望以今天的音樂會名稱作一個首尾呼應:《Meine Ho nung, meine Freude》,意思是 「我的希望,我的喜樂」。既然音樂能為我們帶來光明,願我們心中的那道光,能為 眾人帶來希望與喜樂。 今天演出的曲目,可能有大部分作品都是出自大家(包括我們的團隊)較少甚至從未 曾接觸的作曲家,我們特別希望把這些滄海遺珠跟大家分享。實不相瞞,我們離開舒 適圈探索自己較陌生的音樂,亦花了漠大的堅持和勇氣。這探索旅程,也是我們畢生 的工作吧!我們希望藉著這個階段成果,激勵大家鼓起勇氣,在未知當中,亦不放棄 「迎光」的精神。正值聖誕節期,今晚呈獻的經文歌,很多皆以耶穌為題,期盼大家 可在音樂中感受聖誕的光明。 今天的點題之作《耶穌,我的喜樂》是由大家都必定認識的巴赫 (J. S. Bach) 所寫(音樂 總監按︰是 J. S. 巴赫而不是 J. C. 巴赫,切勿混淆!),其內容剛好切合今晚音樂的重點 。而這經文歌的獨特之處,是它伴隨著聲蜚的成長!我們曾經多次演出此作品,甚至 曾為它添上「新衣裳」,加入舞台元素以劇場形式演出。每當我們再次回到這作品的 懷抱,都必定發現不少之前忽略的細節,可嘗試以不同角度,重新揣摩這真摯動人的 作品,這也是一趟充滿光明與喜樂的成長過程。 感謝大家今晚蒞臨欣賞這場音樂會,誠意邀請大家跟我們一起《迎.光》。 5
