On Sunday, November 24, 2013 at 3:00 PM, The Archdiocesan Choir and the Catholic Schools Choir of the Archdiocese of Galveston Houston, under the direction of Dr. Rick Lopez, will be presenting their 5th Annual "In Memoria" Sacred Music Concert at the Co-Cathedral of the Sacred Heart, located at 1111 St. Joseph Pkwy, in downtown Houston. In contrast to years past, this year's concert program is a concert of celebration rather than a concert of remembrance. December 2013 marks the 50th anniversary of the close of the Second Vatican Council. The day of the concert, November 24, 2013, is the solemnity of Christ the King and the close of the Year of Faith for the Catholic Church. In addition, we will dedicate this concert to Pope Francis (266th Pope) who was installed earlier this year. He is the first pope born outside Europe since St. Gregory III and first from the Americas. First Pope from the Southern Hemisphere. First Jesuit pope. The music selected for this concert will be a celebration of these historic events for the Catholic Church.
The featured work will be "The Coronation Mass" by Mozart with Chorus and Orchestra. The featured soloist will be renowned Houston area Soprano, Barbara Padilla. Joining her will be other well-known Houston area vocal artists that include Mezzo-soprano, Maribel Aguilar-Kohles, Tenor, Eduardo Tercero and Bass, Eduardo Lopez de Casas. In addition to the Coronation Mass the Archdiocesan Choir will be performing "Zadok the Priest" by Handel, "I Was Glad" by Parry and "The Hallelujah Chorus" from the Mount of Olives by Beethoven. The Catholic Schools Choir will be joined by Barbara Padilla singing the "Laudate Dominum" from Vesperae Solennes de Confessore by Mozart.
