Salisbury Singers stay close to home with the music of three noted New England composers: Alice Parker, Gwyneth Walker, and Randall Thompson, whose Frostiana will be performed in its entirety. Set to the poetry of the Pulitzer Prize-winning New England poet Robert Frost, Thompson’s Frostiana: Seven Country Songs are a delightful mix of poems reflecting on nature, and include the famous “The Road Not Taken” and “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening.” Also widely performed throughout the country, the music of American composer Gwyneth Walker is beloved by performers and audiences alike for its energy, beauty, reverence, drama, and humor. Walker’s Psalm 23, commissioned by the Worcester Chapter of the American Guild of Organists for the 1999 Region I Convention in Worcester – June 28, 1999, will be featured on the 20th anniversary of its premiere. Massachusetts composer Alice Parker’s music revels in the melodies of folk songs and hymns of old. The reflections in the sounds of these composers’ gems will envelope you in their warmth as we approach the chilly months.
