Lyrica opens the season with a stunning new 21st century choral monument, Magnificat, by Kim Andre Arnesen. Composed in 2010, the work quickly gained international attention. American performances of works by Arnesen include a performance at the White House for Barack Obama, as well as premieres at New York City's Carnegie Hall. The work is based on the Christmas text from the Gospel according to St. Luke (Luke 1:46-55). Other choral masterpieces by fellow Norwegian composer, Ola Gjeilo will refresh the spirit as the season is welcomed.

Requiem

The glorious Requiem, by Gabriel Faure is the centerpiece for this beautiful choral program leading up to Holy Week. Faure, who was a church organist and choir master, completed the Requiem Mass in 1888. Immediately deemed a success, Faure made two further revisions, one in 1893 and another in 1900. The musical forces included a solo boy soprano, 20-30 person mixed chorus, organ, timpani, and strings (solo violin), violas, cellos, basses. He said, "Everything I managed to entertain by way of religious illusion I put into my Requiem, which moreover is dominated from beginning to end by a very human feeling of faith in eternal rest".
