In 2018, Choral Arts commissioned and premiered a Cantata based on the story of Jesus' presentation in the Temple and being held in the arms of old man Simeon who was promised he would not see death until he beheld the savior of Israel. Chelsea Komschlies was a recent graduate of the Curtis Institute of Music who took on the task of setting this wonderful story, setting it for chorus, soloists, and baroque orchestra, weaving in and out of the 18th century sound world into a more contemporary language. We will pair this modern work with a setting of the Song of Mary, The Magnificat by the 17th century nun composer Isabella Leonarda.
