Requiem, by K. Lee Scott

The Chancel Choir and the Chancel Choir of Indianola Presbyterian Church will present K. Lee Scott’s Requiem on Sunday morning, April 3. Scott’s Requiem is a non-liturgical Requiem drawing on texts from the Psalms, Revelation, a hymn text by Timothy Dudley-Smith and two texts by John Donne. Taking the better part of two decades to complete, Scott compiled a convincing and cohesive set of English texts incorporating a slight evidence of the traditional Latin form of the Requiem Mass.

Over the past few decades, K. Lee Scott has emerged as one of the foremost American composers of music for the Church. His compositions include anthems, hymns that have been included in several recently published hymnals, and several large works, including his Requiem. Accompaniment for the Requiem will be a chamber group in instrumentalists including cello, flute, harp, timpany and organ. Gary Everts and Doug Slusher, director of the Indianola Choir, will share the conducting. Solos will be sung by Cynthia Mahaney and Nancy Roberts. The two choirs will repeat the Requiem at Indianola Presbyterian Church on Sunday morning, April 10.
