The Music of Living
The Music of Living – Dan Forrest
Requiem – Gabriel Faure
There Will Be Rest – Frank Ticheli
American composer and a South Holland Master Chorale favorite, Dan Forrest has written an exuberant setting of a text teeming with the joy and optimism of life. This work is balanced with the gentle, unassuming and beautifully lyrical setting the Requiem text by Gabriel Faure. It is this very quality of understatement which contributes so eloquently to the work’s universal appeal. It’s impossible not to be moved by the ethereal beauty of this humble masterpiece. The concert concludes with Frank Ticheli’s masterful setting of Sara Teasdale’s lyric poem which looks to the stars for serenity and promise.
