Upcoming Concert…Difficult Music

So our next concert is coming up, and man…. for being a soprano who usually sings pretty easy music that is most often the melody or lyrical harmony… This is some tough music.  The Faure Requiem is easy and I have done it several times. It is always beautiful.

Erik Eisenvald’s piece The Passion and Resurrection is hauntingly beautiful but incredibly hard to sing. Mostly because the notes are incredibly high and there is only 4 of us singing the really high notes as this point.  I am attaching a link to a group who did this piece, and it is a snippet of what we will be doing.

Note: This is music sung from the view point of Jesus or Mary Magdalen…. it is, at times, difficult to listen to because of the profound depth of the notes tied with the words and the subject of the death of Christ.  Hope you gain some understanding from this and perhaps appreciate the music.
