Belshazzar -Kirby

"I can’t wait to revisit one of my favorite pieces I’ve sung in TWC: Chichester Psalms; I’m excited to see our new Maestro’s interpretation of this extraordinary work. And to add two new (to me) works will make for an incredible choral experience. I love Morten Lauridsen’s lush harmonies, but have never experienced the Mid-Winter Songs, and I’m enthusiastic about performing what promises to be a breathtaking work in Belshazzar’s Feast."

"Belshazzar's Feast is in the canon of choral masterpieces regularly performed in Europe, but is shockingly neglected in the United States. Walton's incorporation of different musical styles, including Strauss's late Romanticism, jazz, and other popular music styles, calls to mind the work of another great composer, Leonard Bernstein."

"We wanted to start the season of Bernstein's centennial by honoring him with one of the greatest choral works, Chichester Psalms. For audiences that don't know Walton's Belshazzar's Feast, they're in for an incredibly exciting piece of music. I smiled the entire time during my first listen."
