|This year we are featuring a very special work by the famous Russian composer from the Romantic era : Sergei Rachmaninoff. We will be performing portions of his "All Night Vigil" Op. 37, on the cusp of the 100th anniversary of the composition from January 1915. We will be presenting the "Vespers" portion which we recently sang at the Co-Cathedral as part of the Investiture Mass for the "Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulcher of Jerusalem" recently held here in our Archdiocese. This work is rarely included in a "Vespers" service due to the musical and vocal demands of the music on the chorus members. (you have to have good basses! ) We are pleased to perform it in this concert. |
The second half of the concert will be a presentation of the iconic "Requiem" by Gabriel Fauré. This performance will feature the Archdiocesan Choir and chamber orchestra.
The soloists will be Soprano, Priscilla Salisbury from St. Cecilia Parish , and Baritone Eduardo Lopez de Casas, from Prince of Peace Parish. Phyllis Harris will be the featured organist. Phyllis is the Director of Music at St. Pius V in Pasadena and the Archdiocesan Choir accompanist.
