About the Work

Commissioned by Tiia-Mai Redditt for Choral Arts Northwest & the UMKC Conservatory Singers. Robert Bode, conductor. World premiere December 13, 2014. Seattle, WA.
 

The Story

Though originally written for Choral Arts Northwest, this work has taken on a new life in light of the atrocities in Paris and Beirut. Jonathan Talberg, the conductor of the choir at Cal State Long Beach, led his singers in a performance during the memorial vigil for Nohemi Gonzalez, a Long Beach student who was killed in the Paris attacks. The day after the vigil, the choir was supposed to begin rehearsing holiday music; however, Jonathan felt that was not appropriate and wanted time for the singers to grieve this loss. So, at the beginning of rehearsal, he passed out a brand new piece of music (Let My Love Be Heard), rehearsed it, and then recorded it. It was posted on SoundCloud and shared in memory of Nohemi and as a plea for peace. Their musical offering is a powerful outpouring of grief but also a glimmer of light. I am honored that this piece, “Let My Love Be Heard,” has helped to provide hope in the darkness of our world.

Text:

A Prayer
by Alfred Noyes

Angels, where you soar
     Up to God’s own light,
Take my own lost bird
     On your hearts tonight;
And as grief once more
     Mounts to heaven and sings,
Let my love be heard
     Whispering in your wings.

    Beautiful and chilling at the same time. The amount of emotion put into the composition truly shows in the harmonies and dissonances. Great piece, moderately difficult and appropriate for a more advanced ensemble
