A Concert of Hope for Our Time
Dan Forrest’s Requiem for the Living Concert Video
Music has always provided inspiration, joy, solace and comfort to us throughout our lives. More than ever, Dan Forrest’sRequiem for the Living will ease the fear and uncertainty we are experiencing right now. This work was originally performed in March 2017 by the PRUMC Chancel Choir and orchestra as a community service of prayer and hope. The Requiem, at its core, is a prayer for rest- traditionally, for the deceased.
The five movements, however, form a narrative just as much for the living, and their hope in this time of struggle. These movements take the listener on a journey through pleas for rest and mercy, to the turmoil and sorrow facing humanity, and finally closing with portrayals of light, peace and rest.

Music has the ability to profoundly touch our hearts and souls. Being a part of the rich artistic life of our church is an excellent way to experience the awakenings that music can bring. Whether it is the friendship and service of choir, or the magnificence of an orchestral performance, the arts at Peachtree Road bring us closer to God and to each other.
