Revelation

MIDI Ensemble Version

To the Eastern University MIDI Ensemble


Program Notes:

This is a unique collaboration piece for the MIDI Ensemble and University Choir of Eastern University. The text is taken from Isaiah, Luke, and Revelation giving the prophecy of the savior to the world, then the promise of his second coming. The piece combines the more traditional setting of the text and harmonic content of the choir with the modern electronic effects and timbres of the synthesizers, electric guitars and bass, and electronic drums of the MIDI ensemble to create a unique synthesis of genres.

Instrumentation:

Mixed SATB Choir and MIDI Ensemble: 3 Synthesizers, 2 Electric Guitars, Electric Bass, and Electronic Drums

Performed By:

Eastern University MIDI Ensemble and University Choir as part of the Winter Music Festival: McInnis Auditorium, Eastern University, St. Davids, PA. on November 19, 2011. Conducted by Richard Frost, director of the University Choir. John Greenland, MIDI Ensemble director.
