Texts to inaugurate a new auditorium
Date: March 14, 2014
Our high school music wing has getting a much-deserved makeover over the past year. The band and choir rooms are done(-ish), and we are expecting the new auditorium to be ready for early spring 2015. Our music department has been in discussions about creating an event to properly inaugurate our new auditorium, as a way to "show off" the new space, and I offered to compose something especially for the event.
So naturally, I am in search of a good text to use for the choir portion of this new piece. I'm aware of "Locus Iste," and that may find its way into a portion of the work, but I'm leaning towards a big multimedia number, possibly 7-10 minutes in length, that showcases everything we've got music-wise. I'm in search of any text from any part of the world meant to proclaim the importance and/or sacred nature of a space. Love to hear what you know of!
