Music has long been recognized as a source of comfort and joy. This program features a range of music with texts in praise of music’s powers. Ralph Vaughan Williams’ stirring Antiphon (Let all the world in every corner sing) opens the program, setting the scene for other works: Ruth Watson Henderson’s Make me a World, based on text by African-American poet James Weldon Johnson, which tells the story of Creation; Pachelbel’s Singet dem Herrn for double choir; Finzi’s My Spirit Sang all Day; Tim Sarsany’s Let the Heavens Rejoice; Dan Forrest’s The Music of Living; and Moses Hogan’s arrangements of spirituals, including I’m gonna sing and Music down in my soul
