Day is Done: Choral Reflections on War

Sunday, May 15 at 7:30pm

Church of Our Lady of Loretto

Many composers have addressed the subject of war in choral music over the years.  This concert will focus on newer works by primarily American composers whose choice of texts reflects a variety of historical wars from the Civil War through the Iraq War.  Many well-known poets, including Walt Whitman, Siegfried Sassoon, and well-known poems such as “In Flanders Fields” will be represented.  A featured work will be Minnesota composer Jeffrey Van’s “A Procession Winding Around Me,” with Civil War poetry by Walt Whitman set to music for chorus and guitar.  This performance will feature Daniel Quinn on guitar. The concert will close with a lush a cappella arrangement of “God Is Nigh” (Taps) performed in the round.

This is a ticketed event.
