Street Requiem :: San Jose

Street Requiem :: San Jose

Presented by The Choral Project at Cathedral Basilica of St. Joseph

Composed in 2014, Street Requiem— a multi-movement cantata scored for choir, soloists, and chamber orchestra—has already received international acclaim. It aims to bring a sense of peace, remembrance, and hope to communities struggling with homelessness, poverty, war, hate-crime and street violence. The work is neither secular nor religious, but is intended to be spiritual and includes English and African lyrics, as well as traditional Latin texts.  While at times deeply moving, the work is optimistic and uplifting, and employs Gospel, Celtic, neo-Romantic, neo-Baroque, and contemporary compositional styles and instrumentation to reflect the multicultural and multi-faith traditions of modern city living.

One of the composers, Kathleen McGuire said, “Street Requiem provides an opportunity to mourn those we’ve lost—often nameless on our streets—and to protest the tragic injustices we witness every day. These are global issues, but we can each make a difference one by one.”
