Christine Vient (2009). Senior Vocal Recital Soprano Christine Vient prepared a senior recital for performance in the Wagner College Performance Center on Sunday, May 10, 2009 with Mark Hyczko on piano. Christine’s recital included works by George Frideric Handel, Enrique Granados, Jason Robert Brown, and other composers. Four languages were represented: English, Italian, German, and Spanish. The variety of the selections, which ranged from jazz standards and musical theater songs to opera arias and art songs, allowed for a diverse program. The aria “Lascia ch’io pianga” is from Handel’s Italian opera Rinaldo, and “Va godendo” is from another of his Italian operas, Serse, whereas “Waft Her, Angels” is from his English oratorio Jephtha.
