Christ Church Cathedral Choral Masterworks series concert review 

This concert, the second of three celebrating the legacy of Frederick Burgomaster, pulled out all the stops. The first half featured the Indianapolis Festival Chorus and Orchestra, Christ Church Singers, Indianapolis Baroque Singers and the Cathedral Girls' Choir with organist David Sinden. Performances ranged from Ralph Vaughan Williams' full forced "Festival Te Deum" to an incredibly well balanced J.S. Bach "Motet." The Cathedral Girls' Choir's version of Kenneth Leighton's "O sacrum convivium" was the most emotionally powerful piece in the first half, with Sinden's accompaniment highlighting the girls' virtually transparent sound. Mozart's Requiem filled the second half of the concert, featuring the Cathedral Choir of Men and Boys, Indianapolis Festival Orchestra and soloists Olivia Hairston, Steven Rickards, Mark Mowry and Roy Samuelsen. Under the baton of Burgomaster, the group breathed life into a piece written over 200 years ago.
