Light and Life: This Side the Ground
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.
