Voices of Ascension: St. John Passion

Operatic in its scale, dramatic arc, tension, characterizations, and resolution, Bach's St. John Passion is one of the towering masterpieces of Baroque music. The chorus has two alternating roles: one as a “Greek chorus” commenting on the scenes unfolding, and separately as the “crowd” participating in the events. From the first turbulent note of the orchestra, the music propels the narrative toward its inevitable tragic conclusion—and then, redemption.

Voices of Ascension: Italy: The Sistine Chapel

Renowned for Michelangelo's frescos and Papal conclaves, the Sistine Chapel has been home to some of the finest sacred music ever written. Composed in honor of Pope Marcellus, Palestrina’s Missa Papae Marcelli was intentionally written to be “easy listening.” Strongly encouraged to make the words of the Mass intelligible, Palestrina proved that it was possible to compose a musical masterpiece and still have clarity of text. Our concert will also include works by Victoria and the most famous piece ever composed for the Sistine Chapel Choir, Allegri’s Miserere.

Palestrina Missa Papae Marcelli, Allegri Misereri, works by Palestrina, Victoria and others

Santa Rosalia: New York Baroque Incorporated (Role: Ambition)

Music written for the Santa Rosalia festivities in Palermo was often destroyed after the initial performance, underlining the ephemeral character of the event. Thanks to a repeat performance in Modena the year following its 1687 premiere, NYBI will resurrect and give the modern-day premiere of the monumental Santa Rosalia, one of four surviving oratorios by Bonaventura Alliotti. Soprano Johannette Zomer will star in the title role, Santa Rosalia.

With Dashon Burton (Lucifero), Molly Netter (Penitenza), Owen McIntosh (Senso).

Music Director: Lorenzo Colitto

Concert at St. Luke in the Field’s with David Shuler, conductor

On Christmas Day 1554 the Spanish Armada was a long way off on the horizon. Mary Tudor had married Prince Philip of Spain, and in celebration of Mary’s supposed pregnancy Tallis had composed the Missa Puer natus est, which may well have been performed in St Paul's Cathedral on this special day. For this splendid ceremony the English Chapel Royal and choir of St Paul's were joined by Prince Philip of Spain's Capilla Flamenca to sing music by great composers from both countries. In addition to the Tallis mass, this concert will present works by Sheppard, Guerreo and Manchicourt, which were likely to have been performed by these choirs on Christmas Day.
