“One of the most-inventive and adventurous classical music ensembles in the country.” –South Florida Sun Sentinel
Selva Morale et Spirituale by Monteverdi
PATRICK DUPRÉ QUIGLEY, CONDUCTOR
The Guardian refers to Selva Morale et Spirituale as Monteverdi’s “most significant anthology of liturgical works.” Hear Seraphic Fire in its element in this exhibition of the Italian Baroque style.
Entering into their 16th season performing throughout South Florida and on national tours, Seraphic Fire is regarded as one of the preeminent professional vocal ensembles in the United States. Led by Founder and Artistic Director Patrick Dupré Quigley, Seraphic Fire brings top ensemble singers and instrumentalists from around the country to perform repertoire ranging from Gregorian chant and Baroque masterpieces, to Mahler and newly commissioned works by this country’s leading composers. Two of the ensemble’s recordings, Brahms: Ein Deutsches Requiem and A Seraphic Fire Christmas, were nominated for 2012 GRAMMY® awards, making Seraphic Fire the only choral ensemble in North or South America to be nominated that year, and the only classical ensemble in the world to be nominated for two separate projects.
