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

Mendelssohn's Elijah with the Canterbury Choral Society (Mezzo Soloist)

Jonathan De Vries, conductor

Felix Bartholdy Mendelssohn’s 1846 oratorio Elijah was immediately hailed as a masterpiece. Champion of Handel’s and Bach’s oratorios, Mendelssohn created a work that combined the best of older traditions with Mendelssohn’s own compositional and artistic innovations. Inspired by Handel’s Messiah – to which it was often compared – it exemplifies lush and intense mid-nineteenth century Romanticism.

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

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.
