The Choral Society honors Thomas Lloyd on the 20th anniversary of his appointment as only the second Artistic Director in its 47-year history with the premier of a new work by Lloyd composed as a companion piece to follow the much beloved and understated Fauré Requiem. The acclaimed composer of Grammy-nominated Bonhoeffer explores the biblical resurrection appearances of a transformed, risen Christ to Mary Magdalene. Texts for Mary are drawn from the poetically recorded visions of three medieval women mystics: Sts. Julian of Norwich, Teresa of Avila, and Hildegard von Bingen. The choir and soprano soloist engage in three dialogues that probe the boundaries of the eternal.
