A Cloud of Witnesses Sheet music
This dramatic choral work sets a text by David Warner that artfully weaves together multiple witnessing stories of Christ's Resurrection into a single narrative.
Wilberg employs an effective array of musical techniques to depict the protagonists' experiences: from rapid figurations that move through the orchestra creating a sense of momentum and breathless astonishment to pairings of voicings to convey an act of collective witnessing and declamatory exclamations ofpraise.
The work is scored for mixed voices without soloists, conveying a universal perspective on this story, and accompaniment is by piano four-hands or orchestra.
