BACH & MONTEVERDI

Performing at Seraphic Fire-First United Methodist Church (Nov 16 - Nov 16)


Synopsis

From the music of Claudio Monteverdi to the double choir motets of Johann Sebastian Bach, the Book of Psalms has been the bedrock upon which the Western music tradition has been built. Virgil Thompson’s setting of Psalm 23, My Shepherd Will Supply My Need, communicates the psalms’ comforting beauty, while Johann Pachelbel’s Jauchzet dem Herrn (Psalm 100) displays the psalmist’s unbridled joy. Seraphic Fire celebrates the many faith traditions who have found exaltation and solace in the poetic words of King David.

Seraphic Fire-First United Methodist Church

Founded in 2002 by Artistic Director Patrick Dupré Quigley, professional chamber choir Seraphic Fire has garnered critical acclaim both locally and nationally. In an exciting crossover collaboration in 2004, Seraphic Fire was invited to record with international pop-star Shakira on a track for her album Oral Fixation II, which ultimately went Platinum. Seraphic Fire has released four CD recordings to date and will release a fifth next year to celebrate the 400th anniversary of Monteverdi’s Vespers of 1610. In September of 2007, The John S. & James L. Knight Foundation awarded a grant to Seraphic Fire for the formation of a new chamber orchestra.
