Concert: Handel, “Founding Hospital Anthem”

December 7, 2015 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm UTC+0

St. Michael’s Schola Cantorum & The Musicians In Ordinary Orchestra

Handel’s Foundling Hospital Anthem (“Blessed are they that considereth the poor”), composed as a fund-raiser for a London orphanage, is a fitting way to launch the Year of Mercy called for by Pope Francis. For this piece Handel drew on some of his earlier works—most notably Messiah, from which he borrowed the “Hallelujah Chorus.” Performed by The Musicians In Ordinary Orchestra led by Christopher Verrette, with St. Michael’s Schola Cantorum and soloists directed by Michael O’Connor.

Admission free, donations welcome.
