The Church’s Minister of Music, Andrus Madsen, will conduct the Chancel Choir, vocal soloists, and brass instrumentalists from Newton Baroque in “Musikalische Exequien”. Written for the funeral of a German prince, the work was a favorite of Johannes Brahms, who used it as a model for his own great “German Requiem”. Soloists are Julia Steinbok and Shannon Canavin, sopranos; Shiba Nemat-Nasser, mezzo-soprano; Martin Near, countertenor; Thomas Oesterling and David McSweeney, tenors; Matthew Stansfield and Brett Johnson, baritones.
