ST. MEINRAD – A concert of sacred music by the group Angelus will be performed in the Saint Meinrad Archabbey Church at 3 p.m. Sunday.
Angelus is a group of six young women from Mount Vernon Senior High School who are dedicated to the performance of sacred music from varied religious traditions and historical periods. They perform music ranging from medieval chant to the American sacred harp tradition and contemporary Irish sacred music.
The ensemble recently performed at Monastery Immaculate Conception (Ferdinand), St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church (Valparaiso) and at the “Peppermint Pops” with the Evansville Philharmonic Orchestra.
Stephan Casurella, director of music at Christ Church Cathedral, said, “Angelus was an absolute delight. The young women sang with poise and enthusiasm. They clearly love the music they sing, and that love was contagious. Such commitment to refinement of musical expression is unusual, especially in the high school setting.”
In addition to giving 13 major concerts in 2010, the ensemble released two recordings, “Hymns to the Virgin” and “Concert at St. Benedict Cathedral.” The concert recording is available on iTunes and Amazon, while other recordings are available following the concert.
This program is free and open to the public. Parking is available in the Guest House and student parking lots. For more information, contact Mary Jeanne Schumacher at (812) 357-6501.
