Musica Sacra, the longest continuously-performing professional chorus in New York City, celebrates Women’s History Month with composers Meredith Monk and Jocelyn Hagen. Musica Sacra, led by Kent Tritle, will present the New York premiere of Hagen’s oratorio amass. Texts from the Roman Catholic mass are interspersed with poetry from Saint John of the Cross and medieval mystic Meister Eckhart, and Eastern texts from the Hindu poet Tukaram. Soloists are soprano Jennifer Zetlan, tenor John Matthew Myers, baritone Mischa Bouvier, and cellist Arthur J. Fiacco.
 
Meredith Monk will join the Musica Sacra chorus to perform selections from her 1991 opera ATLAS, including “Other Worlds Revealed,” “Explorers’ Junctures,” and “Return to Earth” from Part III: Invisible Light. Katie Geissinger, both a member of Musica Sacra and Monk’s acclaimed Vocal Ensemble, will join Ms. Monk to perform the duet “Hocket” from Facing North. The Musica Sacra chorus will complete Meredith Monk’s set with Nightfall, originally written for Musica Sacra in 1995.
