"A Life in Song" Concert Theme
Date: July 19, 2014
I'm planning a setlist for an SATB collegiate chamber group. The theme the director and I have chosen is journeying through life with song, more specifically, music affecting each stage of life. We have decided to end the concert with Sametz's setting of "I Have Had Singing," about a man on his deathbed that is content with his life because of the presence of song. My job is to fill in the stages before death. I am looking for rep of varied languages and styles to portray this theme. Any suggestions?
