A great evening for Mozart and Salisbury Singers and a nice review in the Worcester Telegram:
Salisbury Singers shine their light through Mozart
As first choral light broke through a temperate Friday evening, it was clear that Trinity Lutheran Church wasn’t just a concert space, but one being activated for its intended purpose: to remind those within its embrace that creation begins and ends with the divine. One could trace the source of that light far beyond Mozart, whose indelible name graced a program presented by the Salisbury Singers, to a realm accessible by faith alone.
The Regina Coeli of 1779, Mozart’s third and final setting of this liturgical text, was an ideal canvas across which to render a harmonious artwork indeed. Set upon the easel of the Bach Consort of Worcester, its images moved by virtue of breath and bow alike. Despite its brevity, if not also because of it, the Regina Coeli paid tribute to risen life, with plenty of glory to spare for those wandering in darkness. Soloists Sarah Mombourquette (soprano), Brooke Mega (mezzo-soprano), David Workman (tenor), and Andrew Tomaski (bass), under the direction of guest conductor Bradford Dumont, wove a fine macramé, linking allusions to Bach and Handel amid crosscurrents of a composer trying to crack the shell of prodigy into individual expression.
