Thirty seven years before the debut of Messiah, the brash twenty year old Georg Frederic Handel was studying the new concertato style in Italy, then the virtuosic center of the Western world. The result was the musically pyrotechnic Dixit Dominus (Psalm 110) designed to flaunt his ability to write elaborate and technically challenging music for both vocal and instrumental performers. Miserere (Psalm 51) by Francesco Scarlatti is also featured as is J.S. Bach’s motet Singet dem Herr nein neues Lied (BWV225).. The Concert Singers of Cary Chamber Choir and the all professional Cary Choral Artists will be joined by an orchestra of Baroque Period instruments and professional soloists.
