“It was not his intention to pattern his Requiem after the Latin mass for the dead...instead, Ein Deutsches Requiem is a work of consolation for those left behind.” Performed with piano duet accompaniment.
THE HOLIDAY CONCERTS
Two festive, fun-filled programs. Take your pick, or attend both! The first is A Chorale Family Christmas, with a massed chorus of the Chorale and choir students from KC-area schools. Then, say “Hello, Holidays!” to the Chorale’s much-loved holiday program. Welcome the season with a sleigh full of traditional and modern carols.

Ellington said, "these concerts are the most important thing I have ever done." The critic Gary Giddins has characterized these pieces as "Ellington bringing the Cotton Club revue to the church."
