Voices 21 presents an examination, through music, of the human spirit as it experiences tragedy, seeks mercy and grace, finding joy through thanksgiving, and finally peace. The sense of loss is poignantly depicted in Eliza Gilkyson's "Requiem," written for the 2004 Asian tsunami victims. The search for grace is explored in Rene Clausen's setting of a prayer by Mother Teresa, Stephen Paulus' stunning arrangement of "The Road Home," and Duruflé's pristine "Ubi Caritas." The joy and peace that faith brings is depicted by Randall Thompson's classic "Alleluia" and Mendelssohn's motet "Jauchzet dem Herrn alle Welt." Central to the concert is the delightful "Missa Brevis" by Dietrich Buxtehude. Bach traveled 200 miles on foot to Lübeck to hear and study the music of this great Danish composer. Come hear what it is that Bach found so interesting and explore the human spirit through an array of stunning music.
