Abstract

We auditioned and got accepted into a prestigious choral festival, presented by the Westminster Choral college in New Jersey. This year the festival will study and perform Requiem by the infamous British composer, Herbert Howells. Few choirs have had the 20 5th Annual Student Research Symposium chance to perform this amazing piece due to it’s difficult and demanding nature. Additionally the work sat dormant from 1950 until its release for publication in 1980, making the work unique in the composer’s output. This festival will allow a focused study of the Requiem, through the professional tutelage of world-class faculty from Westminster Choir College, the Princeton Pro Musica, Palomar College and Georgia State University. To prepare for the festival, we have decided to present an extensive score study.
