Requiem (CD Recording)
This is a live recording (complete with whimpering babies!) of the All Saints Sunday morning service at First Presbyterian Church in Greensboro, NC, on November 7th, 2010. The Chancel Choir was directed by Dr. Robert Wells and accompanied by Dr. Charles Hogan at the organ. The harp accompanist for Psalm 23 was Mrs. Sharon Whitehouse. In the Father’s Dwelling/Sanctus was accompanied by organ and the Westminster Ringers hand bell choir. Clare composed the organ prelude (Worship the Lord), the opening hymn (Hymn of Praise), the Requiem itself, and the organ postlude, an arrangement of Sine Nomine (not on the CD due to excessive background noise). All of these, plus several congregational responses, were written in partial fulfillment of her Master of Arts degree in Music Composition, under the guidance of Dr. Mark Engebretson and Dr. Greg Carroll. The text of the Requiem is the liturgy of the Book of Common Prayer Burial of the Dead (Rite II).
This recording of The Requiem is available as a compact disk (CD) shipped to your door.
