Commissioned in 2009 to celebrate the restoration of Trinity Cathedral in Columbia, South Carolina, John Fitz Rogers’s Magna Mysteria is a seven-movement, 45-minute work for soprano, chorus and children’s chorus, and chamber orchestra that delves into “great mysteries” (magna mysteria). Weaving together Latin biblical texts and poetic verse from the sixth-century philosopher Boethius, the composition explores ideas of home and the seeking of home, the elevation of home to a metaphorical or spiritual realm, and the nature of time. Magna Mysteria is at once complex yet accessible, rooted in tradition (from Brahms and Faure to Britten and Stravinsky) yet wholly contemporary. This encore performance recorded in 2014 features soprano Martha Guth, first prize winner at the 2007 Wigmore Hall Int’l Song Competition, as well as the combined adult and children’s choirs of Trinity Cathedral, under the direction of conductor and choirmaster Jared Johnson.
