Concord of sweet sounds
The economic crisis has blown some ill wind in the direction of my favorite local chorale, Boston Secession - they've had to postpone their recording of Ruth Lomon's new oratorio Testimony of Witnesses, a project that has been years in the making. But the good news is that they still have one more concert planned for this season - a benefit called Dolci Momenti, to take place this Sunday at 3 PM at Old South Church in Copley Square. Featuring works by Handel, Mozart, Purcell, Bizet, Fauré, Saint-Saëns, and Brahms performed at previous Secession concerts, and featuring several distinguished musicians as accompanists, the concert promises to be sweet indeed.
