Capella Clausura caps off its season at Emmanuel Episcopal Church in Boston with three cantatas for chorus and full orchestra by Fanny Mendelssohn Hensel, sister of Felix. She composed all three in 1831, and though they were only recently published, the works prove to be extraordinarily adventurousness and well-crafted. Hiob, three movements on words from Job, is a powerful questioning of humanity's purpose, while Lobegesang (Song of Praise) is five movements expressing pure joy, ending with what LeClair posits is a lullaby. Oratorio Nach Bildung der Bibel, is a complex work for soloists and chorus and orchestra, also called the Cholera Cantata, because she wrote it for the many lost to the cholera epidemic of 1831.
