"Celebrating harmony in troubled times"
John Rutter: Requiem
Florence Price: Praise the Lord; selections from Communion Service in F
With Sonja DuToit Tengblad, soprano, Susan DeSelms, organist, and professional orchestra
In troubled or sad times, people the world over seek solace and greater harmony in musical settings of religious texts. In composing his Requiem, Rutter sought to write music that was consoling while also conveying a sense of journeying from darkness to light. Price draws on Psalm 117 and the text of the communion service in creating music that uplifts, inspires, and calms. With all the challenges of recent years, join us in our final concert of the season for music that comforts, helps our spirits move from darkness to light, and gives hope for more harmonious times.
