Description

Located in Boston, MA 02120

Since its debut performance, The Seraphim Singers has created a special niche among Boston’s performing elite with sensitive and probing performances of a wide variety of the masterpieces of sacred choral music drawn from the earliest times to the twenty-first century. The Seraphim Singers has honed critically acclaimed, refined and elegant interpretations of sacred masterworks composed over the centuries, from Palestrina, Victoria and Byrd of the Renaissance; Bach, Monteverdi, and Handel of the Baroque; Mendelssohn and Rheinberger of the Romantic; to Widor, Vierne, Langlais, Copland, and Duruflé of the twentieth century. In residence at the Basilica of Our Lady of Perpetual Help (known fondly among Bostonians as “the Mission Church”), the ensemble consists mostly of gifted and talented organists, choir directors, composers and other professional musicians whose vast knowledge and experience nourish a passion for arresting and demanding repertoire. Committed to the creation and performance of new music, The Seraphim Singers has a long roster of composers whom the ensemble has commissioned. Well known for advancing works by local living composers, the ensemble has given premiere performances of works by Thomas Bold, Avner Dorman, Elliott Gyger, Graham Ramsay, Eric Sawyer, Julian Wachner and James Woodman, and has recorded choral compositions of Elliott Gyger for the ARSIS Audio label.
