‘The Angels Rejoice,’ with Musica Sacra Cantorum
Dec 03, 2014 02:46PM
It is likely that angels will rejoice at other times during the month of December, but Musica Sacra Cantorum, Sarasota’s only choral ensemble dedicated solely to the performance of sacred music of all traditions, is presenting “The Angels Rejoice” at 7 p.m. on December 8, at Church of the Redeemer.
The Musica Sacra Cantorum Chorus, comprised of the professional vocal ensemble, Voices, singing with the best volunteer singers in the region, and is known for its innovative Christmas programming. Respecting the sacred spirit of the Christmas season, “The Angels Rejoice” features some of the best choral music by the greatest masters. While time-tested, these works are not frequently heard because of the crowded field of pop-oriented seasonal favorites more commonly programmed in holiday concerts.
Now performing in the visually and acoustically inspiring sanctuary of Church of the Redeemer, concerts by Music Sacra Cantorum offer a sanctuary of their own. “The Angels Rejoice” offers a meditative musical experience set aside from the hustle and bustle of the average holiday season weekend.
Location: Church of the Redeemer, 222 S. Palm Avenue, Sarasota. Both subscriptions and single tickets can be purchased at MusicaSacraCantorum.org. For more information, please call 941-405-7322.
