Mass for the Children of War by Joseph Gentry Stephens
Date: July 2, 2014
Hello Choral Friends,
Just wanted to let the community know about the completion of a larger work in four movements/numbers titled, Mass for the Children of War for SATB Chorus with Soprano Solo, Two Pianos, and Strings. Texts range from the traditional Latin (Kyrie) to a single line from the Bhagavad Gita (Zeitgeist) and a digital recording (with effects) of President John F. Kennedy's speech, The President and the Press. The four numbers are as follows:
2. Laudate Pueri
4. Lux Aeterna
Full scores and demo recordings are available for free at http://www.stephensmusic.com in the choral-orchestral section. There are no scheduled performances to date.
