I’m developing a program around these issues. The chorus is about 30 or so vounteers with a handful of pros. A cappella or organ accompaniment preferred (no piano.) Already on the program Poulenc, Un soir de neige; Stanhope, Exile Lamentations (3rd movement.) Any ideas appreciated!July 4, 2019 at 2:08 pm #593768Michael A. GrayParticipant
For songs on homelessness and poverty (without piano), you might take a look at…
Beeson: Give the poor singer a penny
Berlioz: L’adieu des bergers (from “L’enance du Christ”)
Foster: Hard times, come again no more
Gombert: Super flumina
Hayes: By the waters of Babylon
Holst: In the bleak mid-winter
Josquin: Faulte d’argent
Niles “arr”: I wonder as I wander
Palestrina: Super flumina Babylonis
Parker-Shaw arr: Sometimes I feel like a moan’ng dove
Ramirez: La Huida (from “Navidad nuestra”)
Hope that helps!

I wrote a short piece about inner city gentrification last year that definitely pertains to homelessness and poverty. It might be something you’re interested in 🙂 Info, recording and perusal score here — http://jamieklenetsky.com/composition/vanishing/July 15, 2019 at 4:14 pm #594243Elizabeth AlexanderParticipant
Powerful idea for a concert! From my own worktable:
