Album Summary

>Beveridge, Thomas : Yikor Requiem
Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Thomas Beveridge's "Yizkor Requiem," dedicated to the memory of the composer's parents, is a remarkable interweaving of elements common to Jewish and Roman Catholic liturgies. A Cantor takes the leading role in these works, which combines sections of the Latin Requiem, with the Kaddish and other jewish texts to form a musical "sacred bridge." "Yizkor Requiem" is a work of powerful singing. The fine choral writing here is ardently sung by the Washington Chorus.
