Weep, Children of Israel

Company:
Sine Nomine

Sine Nomine’s fall program will feature the well-known Baroque work Jephte by Giacomo Carissimi. Characterized by many as the earliest opera, Carissimi uses limited accompaniment, virtuosic vocal solos, choruses of Israelites, and a narrator to portray the tragic story of Jephte and his daughter. The program explores loss through the eyes of those left behind as well as those that have gone. There will be moments of darkness that resolve through great comfort.

Also featured will be the iconic Lay a Garland by Robert Pearsall, the beautiful Let My Love Be Heard by Jake Runestad, Stephen Chatman’s Remember featuring a Christina Rossetti text, and others.

Please join us with an open heart and stay for refreshments.
