Vermont Choral Union
Missa O Magnum Mysterium: sacred music for the Vermont Traditional Latin Mass
Jeff Rehbach, VCU conductor
The splendor and intricacy of Renaissance music comes alive alongside traditional chant as the Vermont Choral Union, under the direction of Jeff Rehbach, sings at Mass following Epiphany, “Missa In Excelsis Throno.” The Mass features Tomás Luis de Victoria’s a cappella Missa O Magnum Mysterium, composed in 1592, as well as other sacred motets for Christmastide, including works by William Byrd, J.P. Sweelinck, Giovanni Gabrieli, and Z. Randall Stroope. All are welcome to attend this Mass, celebrated in the Extraordinary Form, by Fr. Brian O’Donnell. Please note that this is not a formal concert – VCU is adding beautiful music to this sacred liturgy.
