The American Symphony Orchestra and Händel’s Judas Maccabaeus

It was a stellar evening at Riverside Church with the American Symphony Orchestra and Handel’s oratorio, Judas Maccabaeus (1746). This splendid production inspired just as it projected hope, faith, and perseverance in the face of adversity through the story’s characters, Judas Maccabeaus (Jack Swanson), Man (Deborah Nansteel), Woman (Brandie Sutton), and Simon (William Guanbo Su). The ensemble conveyed well the emotional and spiritual significance of the Oratorio.

Musica Sacra Presents SurRound

Tonight’s special program, Musica Sacra Presents SurRound, was set in the magnificent Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine in Manhattan, New York City.  The audience was treated to a mélange of a capella music from organum of the Middle Ages to the complexity and richness of the Renaissance and seminal works of contemporary times. In addition, we were treated to a world premiere of Daniel Ficarri’s  Blessed Are the Pure in Heart, which shall undoubtedly join the canon of vital choral literature.
