Programme Note
Sarah Kirkland Snider Mass for the Endangered (2018)
Composer note:
Mass for the Endangered is a hymn for the voiceless and the discounted, a requiem for the not-yet-gone. Using original text by writer, visual artist, and musician, Nathaniel Bellows, in combination with the traditional Latin, Mass for the Endangered embodies a prayer for endangered animals and the environments in which they live. Written for SATB choir and twelve instruments, the five-movement piece appeals for parity, compassion, and protection, from a mindset — a malignance or apathy — that threatens to destroy the planet we all are meant to share.

— Sarah Kirkland Snider
