Commissioned by the Hickory NC Choral Society for their 35th anniversary season.
Piano and SATB choir reduction of this work scored for composed for mixed choir with solos for boy soprano and/or mezzo-soprano, soprano & tenor.
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 the vanity 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.
