Angelus: Sacred Music for Women’s Voices
Angelus will present a concert of sacred vocal music on Friday, June 15 at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, Lappans.
Whether the stark beauty of an 10th century chant, the rich harmonic language of a contemporary Irish work or the rustic quality of a Sacred Harp tune, Angelus finds its voice in the wide range of sacred works it performs. Completely unique among American high school vocal ensembles, Angelus is dedicated to the performance of sacred music of varied religious traditions and historical periods.
Angelus has performed over ninety concerts in seventeen states including performances in cathedrals and churches in Asheville, Charleston, Chicago, Cincinnati, Dallas, Indianapolis, New York, San Francisco, St. Louis and St. Paul. Their recordings have been featured on National Public Radio, Minnesota Public Radio and in Europe on the Dutch program, “Song from Ireland”.
In April of 2016, they made their Lincoln Center (NY) debut performing a movement from Christopher Tin’s Grammy Award-winning song cycle, “Calling All Dawns”.
The concert is free and open to the public. A free-will offering will be received and the ensemble’s CDs will be available for purchase.
