The concert “De Profundis” (English translation: “Out of the depths”), will feature a lineup of rarely performed sacred music from the Baroque, Classical, and Romantic eras, on April 13 at the Ayala Museum.
The program will open with Mozart’s Laudate Dominum, lifted from the composer’s “Vesperae solennes de confessore,” followed by Bach’s penitential cantata, BWV 131 “Aus der Tiefen rufe ich,” a setting of Psalm 131 “De Profundis.”
Featured soloists are prizewinning singers Stefanie Quintin and Cipriano “Zip” de Guzman Jr.
Also featured is Pasipo, a vocal ensemble.
Accompanying them on the piano is chamber artist Gabriel Allan Paguirigan.
“Mozart, Bach and Fauré served their respective churches as music directors and organists, leading them to write music that uplift the soul,” Quintin said. —CONTRIBUTED
