GC choral ensembles perform Requiem concert
Georgia College Choral Ensembles will perform “Dies Irae: Works of Remembrance” at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 27, at First Baptist Church in Milledgeville.
Dr. Jennifer Flory, director of choral activities, will lead the performance.
“The idea for this concert came from a couple of students who wanted to perform a Requiem — a musical setting of the mass for the dead,” said Flory. “Students have been learning movements from different Requiems and other works of remembrance.”
University Chorus, the Women’s Ensemble and the Max Noah Singers will perform during the fall concert.
University Chorus will perform “If ye be Risen Again with Christ” composed by Orlando Gibbons; “Lacrimosa” composed by W. A. Mozart; “Introit and Kyrie” composed by Luigi Cherubini; an excerpt from “Dies Irae” composed by Hector Berlioz; and “In Remembrance” composed by Eleanor Daley.
The Max Noah Singers will perform “I am the Resurrection and the Life” composed by Thomas Morley; “Thou Knowest, Lord, the Secrets of Our Hearts” composed by Henry Purcell; “Pie Jesu” composed by Andrew Lloyd Webber; “Lux Aeterna” composed by Edwin Fissinger; and “Nunc Dimittis” composed by Dr. Richard Greene, Georgia College professor of music, who wrote the piece in memory of Dr. and Mrs. Max Noah in 2000.
The Women’s Ensemble will perform “Nunc Dimittis” composed by Thomas Tallis; “Behold, All Flesh is as the Grass” composed by Johannes Brahms; “In Paradisum” composed by Gabriel Fauré; and “Requiem” by Eliza Gilkyson.
The event is free and open to the public. Donations are requested to support Relay for Life.
