Cappella Romana presents: Tchaikovsky’s Divine Liturgy
Benedict Sheehan (“rising star in Orthodox liturgical music”—Orthodox Arts Journal) returns to conduct a once-in-a-lifetime program featuring Cappella Romana with over 100 singers from the Pacific Youth Choir and basso profundo Glenn Miller. Tchaikovsky’s singular artistic voice in his Liturgy broke open the floodgates of creativity in Russian Orthodox choral music, including music for young singers. Grand and majestic sections of the Divine Liturgy beautifully contrast with its intimate moments of devotion and awe. Richly scored motets by Rachmaninoff, Chesnokov, and Sheehan himself amplify the legacy of Tchaikovsky’s monumental achievement.
