Vox Fidelis in Concert Sunday


WESTFIELD, NJ -- On Sunday, March 12, 2017, at 4 p.m., Vox Fidelis, an a capella choral ensemble specializing in Renaissance polyphonic sacred music, will present Woefully Arrayed--The Love and Passion of Christ at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Westfield, NJ. The concert is sponsored by the St. Paul’s Friends of Music.

The program is an overwhelmingly beautiful and sincere concert of Renaissance and 20th century masters that brings to life the strength and intensity of the Lenten season.  The concert will feature works by Lassus, Tavener, Pärt, Lotti, Tallis, Stravinsky, Cornysh, and Palestrina. A highlight of the concert is sure to be Gregorio Allegri's famous Miserere mei, Deus, a 17th century setting of Psalm 51 composed for use only in the Sistine Chapel until, according to legend, it found a wider audience when it was transcribed from memory by the young Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

Vox Fidelis has performed at venues like the Boston Early Music Festival and St. Bartholomew’s Episcopal Church in New York City and leads a regular Compline series at Christ Church, Bordentown, New Jersey. The group is a member of the Guild for Early Music and is a 501c3 not-for-profit organization in the state of New Jersey. They last performed at St. Paul's in 2014 as part of the Friends of Music concert series.
