Choir of St. Luke in the Fields – The Birth of the Oratorio

March 8 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

$25 – $35

Seventeenth-century Italy witnessed the birth of a new dramatic music genre, the oratorio.  Giacomo Carissimi was the most significant composer of oratorios at the time, and the influence of his works rapidly spread throughout Europe. A student of Carissimi, Marc-Antoine Charpentier brought the sacred music drama to Paris. The concert will include Carissimi’s best-known oratorio, Jepthe, along with Jonas.  Charpentier’s Filius prodigus (‘The Prodigal Son’) and Maria Magdalena stabat by the Benedictine nun Chiara Margarita Cozzolani will complete the program.

Choir of St. Luke in the Fields directed by David Shuler
with Baroque in the Fields, an ensemble of period instruments

Lecture at 7 pm

This program is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.

This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
