YOU DO NOT WALK ALONE
for SATB chorus, unaccompanied
Dominick DiOrio (b.1984)
"This setting of a traditional Irish blessing speaks of those who give support in times of trial with a musical tapestry of unadorned a cappella mixed chorus, using soft dissonances and free-flowing counterpoint. The occasional divisi creates a sonic wash of color and overtones. Together in song, we do not walk alone."*
This work was performed on the April 1st, 2017 NOTUS concert, at Indiana University in Auer Hall. A full program can be downloaded here.
