Hampson Sisler, organist and composer, is one of the most prolific composers today with over 100 works to his credit.  His works were written for organ, chorus, concert band, chamber and symphony orchestra.   At 17 years old, Hampson was the youngest person ever awarded the American Guild of Organists' coveted Fellowship status and has had performances of his works the world over. Today, in addition to being a composer, Sisler maintains a dual career as an organist and choral director. He has served seventeen churches, most notably Lafayette Avenue Presbyterian Church in Brooklyn, where Abraham Lincoln was an occasional attendee, and Central Presbyterian Church in Manhattan, where Charles Ives served in the same position in the early 1900s. Currently, Hampson Sisler is the music director at the historic St. James Episcopal Church in Elmhurst, New York. His recent compositions have been performed in Bulgaria, Israel, Czech Republic, Russia and the United States. The majority of his orchestral works have been recorded on the MSR Classics label.

For comments on this show, please email: ken@classicalmusicdiscoveries.com Jérusalem is a grand opera in four acts by Giuseppe Verdi. The libretto was to be an adaptation and partial translation of the composer's original 1843 Italian opera, I Lombardi alla prima crociata. It was the one opera which he regarded as the most suitable for being translated into French and, taking Scribe's advice, Verdi agreed that a French libretto was to be prepared by Alphonse Royer and Gustave Vaëz, who had written the libretto for Donizetti's most successful French opera, La favorite. The opera received its premiere performance at the Salle Le Peletier in Paris on 26 November 1847. This performance is by the CMD Grand Opera Company of Venice.  You can purchase this recording for only $1.99 at our online store  - www.ClassicalRecordings.co - just click on the hyperlink appearing below on our title page if streaming online.   Please click on the link below to support Classical Music Discoveries.  Your kind donation of ANY amount is greatly appreciated!
