Commissioned by the Hickory NC Choral Society for their 35th anniversary season. Scored for mixed choir with solos for boy soprano and/or mezzo-soprano, soprano & tenor, the instrumentation is available for large orchestra or chamber ensemble.Combining both liturgical and non-liturgical texts, in some cases the traditional texts are slightly re-arranged for contextual emphasis. This powerful five movement work projects a wide range of meaningful expression from a biting essay on thevanity and pain of existence, to a plea for mercy, and a celebration of eternal light. The work stands alone - but would be especially moving for all saints, Good Friday, or even Palm Sunday.Movements:Introit - KyrieVanitas VanitatumAgnus DeiSanctusLux Aeterna3 instrumentations available on rental only:1.
