SATB Choir with organ

Item Number: WL.009411

Here is a notable new choral piece for Easter by Chicago-area musician Tony Barr. To paraphrase the composer's thoughts: "This piece reflects on the Resurrection as a bridge between heaven and earth. In fact, the basic melodic intervals (C – F#) suggest the linking of the two distant worlds, bound inseparably together. A sense of timelessness lies in the absence of any meter. The pulse is derived from the text." In this musical journey, Tony makes discerning use of dynamic variances, contrasting dissonant and congruent harmonies as well as substantial organ writing to narrate and rejoice in this most fundamental event of our faith.
