Handel’s Messiah

The Messiah, Part 1, and selections from Parts II and III
Hallelujah! The holiday spirit comes alive with the rousing Hallelujah Chorus from The Messiah. Come listen to this and all of the Part I “Christmas Section” of Handel’s immortal masterwork. ’Tis the season!

Pax + Amare

Duruflé’s Requiem and Vaughan Williams’ Five Mystical Songs
The ethereal, intimate setting of “Pie Jesu” is the essence of the Duruflé Requiem, which shares a 20th century vision vastly unlike other Requiem masses. The serenity of “In Paradisum” conjures visions of angels welcoming weary souls to rest. Come listen and be at peace.
