Upcoming Concert Saturday, May 13, 2023, 8:00 pm
Celebrating Harmony in Troubled Times
John Rutter (b. 1945): Requiem
Florence Price (1887-1953): Praise the Lord and selections from Communion Service in F
With organ and professional orchestra
For our final concert, we celebrate harmony with John Rutter’s belovedRequiem and selections from works by Florence Price. We are delighted to bring you Rutter’s modern Requiem which incorporates parts of the Latin Requiem with added psalms and biblical verses in English. An undeservedly overlooked and significant American composer, Florence Price’s beautifully written Praise the Lord and selections from the Communion Service in F are settings of familiar texts that reflect both her European influenced training at New England Conservatory and her Southern roots. Price was the first African-American woman to be recognized as a symphonic composer. Commonwealth Chorale is pleased and excited to introduce our audience to music by this talented composer.
