“There Will Be Rest” Friday, September 24, 2010

Though best known as a composer of music for orchestra and concert band, Frank Ticheli has also written a number of notable pieces for choral ensembles.  Using a text by Sara Teasdale, There Will Be Rest features tasteful harmonic suspensions and rich choral textures which bring the work to life with a delicate beauty that perfectly expresses the spirit of the poem: “There will be rest and sure stars shining over the rooftops crowned with snow…”  Scored for SATBB a cappella choir, this is a superb choice for concert appearances with more capable choirs any time of year.  Listen to the full work here, and contact us for more notable choral repertoire choices.
