Hildegard of Bingen: Ordo Virtutum (Play of Virtues)
PATRICK DUPRÉ QUIGLEY, CONDUCTOR
Grammy-nominated Seraphic Fire makes their return appearance to Sauder Concert Hall for a performance and to record their latest project. The Miami- based vocal ensemble will perform Ordo Virtutum, or Play of the Virtues, a medieval musical drama written by the 12th-century abbess Hildegard of Bingen, universally revered as one of the greatest minds of the Middle Ages. Told in Hildegard’s haunting plainchant compositions, the “Soul” struggles between the pull of the Virtues and the Devil, and features a cast including Mercy, Victory, Patience, Discretion and Charity. The women of Seraphic Fire bring this nearly millennia-old masterpiece back to life.
A Seraphic Fire Christmas
JAMES K. BASS, GUEST CONDUCTOR
The incomparable voices of Seraphic Fire resound in carols, ancient and modern, in this new Christmas program. Seraphic Fire explores the songs of the angels, including Gregorian chant, Renaissance motets, English carols and the traditional singing of Silent Night, O Come All Ye Faithful, and Jesus Christ, the Apple Tree. For over a decade, Seraphic Fire’s Christmas concerts have been a South Florida tradition.
