TICHELI: Rest for String Orchestra

Captured on May 5, 2021

Let us pause on Memorial Day to remember all the lives we have lost, and find solace in Frank Ticheli's moving piece, Rest. Originally a vocal work based on the poem There Will Be Rest by Sara Teasdale, this arrangement by the composer for string orchestra will be accompanied by visual elements. Ticheli dedicated this composition to the memory of Cole Carsan St.Clair, the son of Carl St.Clair and his wife, Susan.

This performance will be available for FREE streaming through June 28.

There Will Be Rest
by Sara Teasdale (1884-1933)

There will be rest, and sure stars shining
Over the roof-tops crowned with snow,
A reign of rest, serene forgetting,
The music of stillness holy and low.

I will make this world of my devising
Out of a dream in my lonely mind.
I shall find the crystal of peace,
– above me Stars I shall find.
