The Symphony Chorus will fill the rafters of Santa Fe’s First Presbyterian Church with three European masses, led by Choral Director Dr. Linda Raney. Two modern French works, Duruflé’s Messe Cum Jubilio for male voices and Fauré’s Messe basse for women’s choir, are complemented by a seventeenth-century Mass in F by Monteverdi. A treble-choir setting of Magnificat by twentieth-century British composer Gerald Finzi rounds off the afternoon’s performance; a friend of Ralph Vaughan Williams, Finzi spent his life promoting the works of eighteenth-century British composers whose works had fallen into obscurity.
Please join us on Sunday on March 12, 2017, at 4:00 pm. It’s pay-what-you-wish, no tickets required! The First Presbyterian Church of Santa Fe is located at 208 Grant Ave in downtown Santa Fe.
The Santa Fe Symphony Chorus has a considerable history of musical excellence in choral performance. The Chorus of Santa Fe was founded in 1979, five years before The Santa Fe Symphony Orchestra. In 1986, that chorus joined The Santa Fe Symphony Orchestra to form the present organization known as The Santa Fe Symphony Orchestra & Chorus. Read more!
