Conductors of sacred music have known the genius of Mark Hayes for many years. This major work will further establish Mark as one of the truly great writers of serious contemporary music in America as well. Written specifically for a Carnegie Hall debut, this major work can be performed with piano alone, but will be greatly enhanced when either the full orchestration or the chamber orchestration is used. The work is further enhanced with the use of a macaronic text, and is well suited for church or symphonic chorus and orchestra use. The listening/performance CD was recorded by the Kansas City Chorale, Charles Bruffy, Conductor. Duration 11:30.
