Friday March 16th, 7:30 P.M.

Capella Antiqua and Cathedral Choir join forces with soloists Robin Fisher, Valerie Loera, Matthew Hidalgo, and Daniel Yoder to provide a moving concert of one of Haydn’s most famous works. First performed in 1768, Haydn’s Stabat Mater explores the depths of human emotions, from despair and grief, to lasting joy. This work contains some of the composer’s most rich and deeply felt writing, with moving choruses and soaring solos. Come enjoy Haydn as he was meant to be heard, with period instruments and astounding voices, in the exquisite surroundings of the Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament.



Capella Antiqua Choir
Rexphil Rallanka, organ

Friday May 11th, 7:30 P.M.

Inspired by the Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament’s namesake, this concert presents works based on Eucharistic texts, with a particular focus on those written by St. Thomas Aquinas for the institution of the Feast of Corpus Christi in the 13th century. Highlighting the talents of the Capella Antiqua choir and organist Rexphil Rallanka, the hymns and anthems of this program will provide a survey of this art form throughout the musical world, featuring favorites like Mozart’s jubilant Laudate Dominum alongside lesser-known masterworks such as Gerald Finzi’s rapturous Lo, the Full, Final Sacrifice.
