April 25, 2020 - 2:30pm
Requiem for the Living – Dan Forrest
Trinity Te Deum – Erik Esenvalds
Requiem for the Living is a transcendent prayer for peace and rest
based on the liturgical Requiem and other texts. It is a narrative just
as much for the living, and their own struggle with pain and sorrow,
as for the dead. The Trinity Te Deum reimagines the Anglican
tradition of ceremonial music for a grand occasion in the composer’s
own terms. Fanfares, jubilation, hushed and magical at times, this
work has the air of both a gentle, stately
dance and a naive folksong.
Winners of the Fourth Annual
Prescott Chorale Young Artists Competition will perform.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE APRIL 25,2020 CONCERT WILL BE HELD AT THE NEWLY RENOVATED RUTH STREET THEATER, 1050 Ruth Street, Prescott. October and December concerts will take place at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, 2000 Shepherds Lane, Prescott.
