Baroque Cantata
West Park, NY: Holy Cross Monastery:  Kairos: A Consort of Singers, under the direction of Dr. Edward Lundergan, continues its 2017-2018 Bach Cantata Series on Sunday, Feb. 4, at 3:00 p.m. The program will be performed in the intimate and acoustically superb chapel of the Holy Cross Monastery, 1615 Route 9W, West Park, N.Y. 12493. J.S. Bach’s Cantata 70, Wachet, Betet! first performed in 1723, invokes the imagery of the Last Judgment and the Second Coming, with urgent exhortations to watch and pray, to rejoice and be comforted. The instrumental ensemble performing with Kairos features trumpet and oboe, which provide a dramatic foil for the chorus, soloists, and string players. The program will also include two short choral motets. One of these is by the great Italian Renaissance composer Giovanni da Palestrina, whose work represents a high point of musical development and who was known in his lifetime as "The Prince of Music." The second motet on the program is by Peter Philips, an eminent early 17th-century English composer who, in addition to his works for the voice, was one of the great keyboard virtuosos of his day. Rounding out the program will be a sonata for oboe by G.F. Handel performed by Joel Evans. 3 pm. 845-256-9114  http://www.google.com/url?q=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.kairosconsort.org&sa=D&sntz=1&usg=AFQjCNE151CMnerBjV0ZlzZLUi7bFEv6-Q
