DescriptionFrom a choral repertoire spanning five centuries, Musica Sacra performs works both familiar and rare.
The group has performed at the invitation of institutions such as the Boston Early Music Festival; WGBH Radio; The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; and the Fogg Art Museum of Harvard University. In 2003, Musica Sacra released their much-anticipated studio recording, Love, Lust, and Laudations: Flemish Choral Music of the High Renaissance. In 2004, Musica Sacra premiered Boston composer Daniel Pinkham's Magnificat for chorus, soprano and wind quintet-a new work written especially for Mary Beekman and Musica Sacra.
Firmly committed to reaching under-served audiences, Musica Sacra has performed for various charities and charitable events in the Boston area. The group's "Four-Part Harmony" fundraiser for the homeless has raised over fifty thousand dollars since 1998. Other efforts have included performances at the Massachusetts Mental Health Center, Youville Hospital and at the annual AIDS Walk in Boston.
