He is preparing the work for a concert in November with his Irvine Camerata, a professional vocal group he founded over the summer. (See related story.

Robert Hickok, dean of the UC Irvine School of Fine Arts, is one of 77 faculty members taking the latest early-retirement offer by the university, the third such offer since 1991. Appointed dean in late 1988, Hickok oversaw notable developments in the school but also encountered obstacles imposed by a budget-cutting state Legislature and electorate. In an interview Monday in his office on campus, Hickok looked back on his tenure and explained his decision to leave by July 1.

Robert Hickok conducted the Irvine Camerata, soloists and a period-sized orchestra of modern instruments in a problematic performance of Handel's dramatic oratorio "Saul" on Wednesday at the Irvine Barclay Theatre. Billed as a Southern California premiere, this "Saul" appeared to be substantially complete, with Hickok observing the cuts recommended by Handel specialist Winton Dean of the David-Jonathan scene and Merab's aria in which she changes her earlier haughty opinion of David.

They sit on risers, relaxed and informal, wearing T-shirts or blouses, jeans or shorts, tennis shoes or thongs. They may look like mere mortals, but when they open their mouths, they can sound like angels. Robert Hickok, dean of fine arts at UC Irvine, is rehearsing his new 24-member Irvine Camerata, which makes its debut on Friday at the campus Fine Arts Concert Hall. The singers are rehearsing music from the golden age of polyphony--Renaissance and early Baroque works by Lassus, Victoria, Byrd, Schutz and others.

Regarding "Who Was Steven" (Sept. 22, by Paul Dean): An abduction by a stranger by whom he was repeatedly sexually molested over a period of seven years robbed him of his childhood innocence. A tragic motorcycle accident recently robbed him of his life. Some people never get an even break in life. Steven Stayner was definitely one of those people. Hopefully he has now found tranquility and peace of mind. After the miserable life he has gone through, he certainly deserves it. KENNETH L.

Robert Hickok and the Irvine Camerata apparently had a point to make with their concert Saturday at St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church: that sacred music, no matter how ancient, can still move us in an immediate, dramatic way. They made the point, and then some, in an enlightening program of music from the 16th to 18th centuries. In the process, Hickok unearthed a rarely heard masterpiece, the oratorio "Jepthe" by Giacomo Carissimi (1605-1674).
