REQUIEM FOR THE LIVING, APRIL 22
Please join the musicians, soloists and choirs of St. Luke’s Church on Sunday, April 22, 2018 at 3:00 pm for a performance of Dan Forrest’s Requiem For The Living, a Granville premiere.
A Requiem, at its core, is a prayer for rest, traditionally, for the deceased. The five movements of Dan Forrest’s Requiem For The Living, (2013), however, form a narrative just as much for the living, and their own struggle with pain and sorrow, as for the dead. Combining both liturgical and non-liturgical texts, this powerful five-movement work projects a wide range of meaningful expression, from a biting essay on the vanity and pain of mankind to a plea for mercy, and finally a celebration of eternal light.
A freewill offering will be taken for this event open to the public.
