The featured work, Timothy Powell’s Appalachian Requiem “Consider the Lilies,” intends to capture the sounds and feelings of the North Georgia mountains where the composer grew up. It was a place where “rugged, unaccompanied voices…echo and filter down through the trees.” Filled with imagery from nature and infused with the innocence of childhood, “Consider the Lilies” was composed after a life-altering tragedy for Powell, providing a means for him to work through his grief. Singers and instrumentalists from Clayton State University join us for these two performances.
