Ordo Virtutem

Krista Cornish Scott, Conductor

Collegium gets Medieval! Composed by St. Hildegard von Bingen around 1151 for performance by the cloistered nuns in her abbey, Ordo Virtutum is a sacred drama featuring the struggle for a human soul between the Virtues and the Devil. Interpolated into the mesmerizing plainchant and mystical words of Hildegard are shouted passages by the Devil, for whom access to God's gift of music is starkly denied. Performances of this work are extremely rare, so don't miss your chance to experience Collegium's semi-staged regional premiere.

Handel's Messiah

Kent Tritle, Conductor

Guest conductor Kent Tritle joins the Collegium to lead this annual Christ Church Cathedral tradition. Called “the brightest star in New York’s choral music world” by The New York Times, he is Director of Cathedral Music and Organist at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York City; Music Director of Musica Sacra, the longest continuously performing professional chorus in New York; and Music Director of the Oratorio Society of New York, the acclaimed 200-voice volunteer chorus.

With the Collegium, he will follow our tradition of performing the work with just 16 singers and a small chamber orchestra: every detail of Handel’s masterpiece can be heard in this stunning production.

Mozart's Mass in C Minor

Christopher Eanes, Conductor

When twenty-six-year-old Mozart was married to his wife Constanze, he promised her that he would write her a grand mass in honor of the occasion. The promise remained (mostly) unfulfilled until his death; he completed only half of the work, and so it is left to scholars to imagine what might have been. Nonetheless, it is one of Mozart’s most startlingly beautiful works, and Collegium will perform it in a completion by the scholar Frieder Bernius. Scored for a double chorus and an orchestra complete with trombones and timpani, Mozart’s Mass in C Minor is a piece for the ages!
