Central City Chorus Presents "Good Night, Dear Heart"
Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.
Two American works, Eric Whitacre’s When David Heard and Jonathan David’s Stabat Mater, form the cornerstone of this program: Whitacre’s heart wrenching work utilizes the powerful beauty of silence and empty moments to depict the devastation felt at the loss of a child, a technique also employed in David’s musical meditation for the mourning Mother of Christ that is heightened with his use of appoggiaturas as a “sighing” figure. Rounding out the program are Dan Forrest’s eponymous piece, a setting of Mark Twain’s epitaph for his beloved daughter, was written in response to a family tragedy; James MacMillan’s A Child’s Prayer written in memory of the victims of the Dunblane shooting; and works by Herbert Howell, Daniel Gawthrop, and Jake Runestad.
Venue: St. Ignatius of Antioch Episcopal Church
West 87th Street btw Broadway & West End
