A FREE CONCERT AT YALE
Saturday, December 3, 4-5pm
Saint Thomas More Chapel @ Yale 268 Park Street, New Haven
Joint performance by Musica Sacra (NYC professional choir) and Yale singers
Julian Revie, composer in residence at St Thomas More Chapel, New Haven, wrote the pieces connected to the “Kyrie”
This dramatic setting of the Kyrie for twelve-part mixed chorus expresses three contrasting yet complementary facets of the human experience in our shared and much needed plea for divine mercy: despair, longing, and hope. These aspects of our cry for mercy are expressed in the subtitles I have added to the three sections of the piece: Out of the Depths, I Cry to Thee (Ps. 130:1); The Soul and Her Savior; and God is My Help, My Soul Is at Rest (Ps. 62:5).
