The Princeton University Chamber Choir performs Poulenc's extraordinary cantata Figure humaine, a work written during the Nazi occupation of France. 

About the Artist:

The Chamber Choir is a select group of 25-30 mixed voices that sings a range of challenging music from the Renaissance period through the twenty-first century. Most of the choir’s membership also sings in the Princeton University Glee Club.  This ensemble performs in concert with the Glee Club as well as on a separate concert series, and is frequently invited to perform off campus. Because of the advanced repertoire and relatively light rehearsal load, a Chamber Choir member possesses a high level of musicianship, and normally has some experience of high level choral singing. Recent repertoire has included Bach's complete motets, Lassus’ Magnificat Praeter Rerum Seriem and Handel's Dixit Dominus.
