Welcome to Musica Sacra’s 2023-24 season

Spirit and Splendor: Schütz & Handel

Heinrich Schütz’s Musikalische Exequien — the first German requiem — is rich in its choral textures and variation. The splendor of Handel’s famously challenging Dixit Dominus showcases the virtuosity of the Musica Sacra Chorus with a marvelous cast of soloists. These signature works of Musica Sacra will be performed under Divine Pathways, seating the audience beneath the stunning site-specific textile installation by artist Anne Patterson and weaving in these with glorious sounds of the baroque era! A not-to-be-missed experience.

Pre-concert discussion with Anne Patterson and Kent Tritle | 7 PM
