LUX – The Dawn From On High by Dan Forrest
Good Friday, March 30
Join us Good Friday evening at 7 pm for a powerful experience of music and scripture. The evening will feature the Chancel Choir and professional orchestra performing the latest work from Birmingham First’s favorite composer, Dan Forrest. This new work entitled Lux: The Dawn from on High explores various facets of light in texts ranging from ancient liturgical texts to scripture to modern secular love poetry. The music draws on sources as diverse as ancient chant, modern minimalist composers, and jazz to make a work that is engaging and moving. On a day when we commemorate the death of Christ, how might these texts and this music enhance our living experience of Christ as the light of the world? We hope you will join us to find out.
