A TIME OF PEACE was commissioned by Chorus Abilene of Abilene, TX, in celebration of the chorus's 25th Anniversary! The first performance was on Saturday, August 6th, 2016 at 7:00pm at The Abilene Civic Center, conducted by the group's founder, Betty Karol Wilson. This 10-minute piece is scored for soprano solo, chorus and piano duet, and sets the text from Ecclesiastes 3: 1-8. It is also available with organ accompaniment, in place of the piano duet version.
The FOUR LATIN MOTETS are original settings of Ubi Caritas (SATB), Tota Pulchra Es (SSA), Tu Es Petrus (TBB) and Tantum Ergo (SATB) and may be performed as a set, or as individual liturgical motets. They were conceived as an interesting pairing with Duruflé's settings of the same texts, with three verses of Ubi Caritas. The FOUR LATIN MOTETS will be premiered by the Washington based chamber choir CATHEDRA (Mike McCarthy, director) on October 11, 2016 at St. Paul's School, Concord, NH.
