Photo Slideshow: Harvard University Choir performs Tobias and the Angel


On March 4th, the Harvard University Choir performed Jonathan Dove's church opera Tobias and the Angel at the Memorial Church. Dove's music (libretto by David Lan) combines an overt lyricism with a sensitivity to text declamation that makes his music instantly relatable. Inventive orchestration, subtle characterizations and dramatic chorus permeate this work, resulting in a vivid portrayal of the quirkier episodes in the Apocrypha. – Edward Elwyn Jones, Gund University Organist and Choirmaster.

Featured soloists: Christopher Talbot, Susannah Thornton, Jonas Budris ’06, Benjamin Wenzelberg ’21, Nathan Reiff, Sol Kim Bentley, Ketti Jane Muschler, Fred Metzger ‘18, James Baskerville ’18, Sean Telford G1.
