World Premiere: Requiem

The World Premiere of Dan’s Requiem, for SATB chorus, soloists, string orchestra and organ was given on November 1, 2015 as part of Choral Evensong for the Feast of All Saints at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, 520 Summit Street in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Performers include the St. Paul’s Choir, guest soloists and string orchestra members of the Winston-Salem Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Dr. John Cummins, Organist/Choirmaster of St. Paul’s.

The composer writes, “Begun in 2012, Requiem was completed on April 3, 2015 (Good Friday) and is dedicated to the memory of my parents. In nine movements and approximately forty minutes in length, the texts for Requiem are all in English and are drawn from both the traditional Requiem Mass as well as from The Book of Psalms.”
