About the event

All are welcome to this very special celebration of Solemn Vespers, in Latin according to the traditional Roman Breviary, featuring a chamber orchestra for some of the greatest choral works ever written for the Divine Office. The centerpiece is Mozart's Vesperae solennes de confessore, K. 339, to be supplemented with:

Concerto No. 1 in D Major -- W. A. Mozart after Johann Christian Bach

Domine ad adjuvandum -- Baldassare Galuppi

O Salutaris -- Luigi Cherubini

Salve Regina -- Vincenzo Bellini

Our celebrating priest will be assisted by six additional clerics as cantors in copes. Following Vespers will be a short sermon, then Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament. The event celebrates the feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross. Visitors will additionally be able to partake in the Feast of San Gennaro: a week-long festival in New York City's Little Italy district, which begins on this day (more info HERE).
