On March 30th, 7pm, the Parish Choir, with soloists and a chamber orchestra will once again bless our congregation and surrounding community with a beautiful requiem. This year, the Parish Choir will be singing Requiem for the Living by Dan Forrest, a contemporary composer who has written many powerful anthems some of which the Parish Choir has sung, Forrest completed Requiem for the Living in 2013, and the work is beginning to gain the attention it deserves. The piece, a lyrical and dynamic setting of the Requiem Mass, aims to offer comfort to both the dead and the living. It journeys through much of the traditional requiem Latin text, and culminates in a beautiful tenor solo, proclaiming Matthew 8:28: “Come to me, all ye who are weary and heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” We hope that this requiem offers comfort, pause, and relief to all those who attend this service.
