Memorial (for the victims of Sandy Hook) by Ellen Taaffe Zwilich Performed by the New York Virtuoso Singers, Conducted by Harold Rosenbaum

Quick Overview

Zwilich's Memorial begins with the Requiem aeternam text in the mixed chorus, but soon introduces a sung recitation of the names of the child victims by the children's chorus. The effect of the overlay is heartfelt grief and a powerful evocation. The closing dona nobis pacem is especially effective. Dur.: 5'30"
