Dedham Choral Society presents Requiem for the Living
Sun, April 7 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm EDT$5 – $30
DCS’ spring concert featuring works by American composer Dan Forrest (born 1978) will open with two shorter pieces, “The Music of Living” and “You Are the Music,” followed by the Boston premiere of the powerful “Requiem for the Living,” a five-movement composition scored for chorus, organ and chamber ensemble (violin, cello, flute, oboe, horn, harp, and percussion). Completed in 2012, it has been described by its composer as a “narrative for the living and their own struggle with pain and sorrow.” The musical setting of the text “heavens, full of glory” was inspired by images of space taken by the Hubble Space Telescope and photos of Earth as seen from the International Space Station.
