For over a century, the halls of the Cathedral of St. John the Divine have been filled with music made by world-renowned musicians. This November, OSL offers a concert of music in appreciation of the people of NYC, their resilience, and strength of their hearts. An incredible line up of guest artists join OSL musicians and Principal Conductor Bernard Labadie, including mezzo-soprano Susan Graham, soprano Lauren Snouffer, tenor Andrew Haji, bass-baritone Michael Sumuel, and the Musica Sacra Chorus for a program of choral and orchestral music that will fill even this tremendous space with sound. The concert begins with Haydn’s three part choral drama Te Deum, a liturgical celebration originally commissioned by Empress Marie Therese of Austria at the turn of the 19th century. Paired with this work is Mozart’s Requiem, one of Western Art Music’s most revered and mysterious works. Commissioned just weeks before Mozart’s death, the Requiem was incomplete at the time of his passing and was completed in secrecy by Mozart’s pupil Franz Xaver Süssmayr. While the specifics of the composition process remains somewhat of a mystery, the legacy of the piece is clear: Mozart’s Requiem will be forever known as one of the most significant contributions to Western Art Music.
