'Requiem for the Living'
Les Braves Statues in Normandy, France
The Colorado Springs Chorale presents Dan Forrest’s emotional ‘Requiem for the Living’ and selections from their performances as the official choir of the D-Day Commemorative Ceremonies in Normandy, France.
Dan Forrest’s 'Requiem for the Living' draws on centuries of tradition in choral settings of the Requiem Mass (The Latin Mass for the Dead.) Rather than focusing on the souls of those who have departed and the agonies of the day of judgment, Forrest seeks to offer solace to those left behind. With lyricism, harmonic warmth, and textual choices unique to his own setting, he achieves an emotional directness and accessibility for singers and listeners.
