What's on Great Sacred Music, Sunday, November 11, 2012

Location: North Carolina, USA
Choir type: Choirs with Religious Affiliation
Music for Veterans Day this Sunday. If you have not heard Benjamin
Britten's War Requiem, it is profoundly moving on so many levels. Britten was anti-war.
He abhorred war and its senseless violence. He wrote his Requiem for the re-consecration
of Coventry Cathedral which had been destroyed in World War II. But Britten was also
passionate about reconciliation which is one of the reasons he specifically wrote music
for three soloists: a German bass, a Russian soprano and an English tenor.
We honor all veterans on November 11. Immediately following Great Sacred Music
you will hear Taps, The National Anthem as well as several more patriotic selections.
"Now rest in peace, our patriot band, 
Though far from nature's limits thrown, 
We trust they find a happier land, 
A brighter sunshine of their own."....Philip Freneau
