Boston University’s Marsh Chapel Choir usually sings church music at nondenominational worship services. It specializes in Bach, the Anglican choral tradition, and music from the Renaissance, and the audience rarely tops 200. None of whom are sweating and screaming.
But this week the staid choir was on stage at TD Garden in front of 12,000 out-of-their-minds Rolling Stones’ fans, standing alongside Mick Jagger in his shimmering shirt. When the spotlight landed on the choir, its members broke into the a capella opening of the Stones’ classic “You Can’t Always Get What You Want.”
