Tuvayhun

(Beatitudes for a Wounded World)
Kim Andre Arnesen - Kim Andre Arnesen

With a moving text by Charles Anthony Silvestri, this innovative 80-minute major work is based on the Beatitudes, with a message of inclusion, trust, kindness, compassion, humanity, and mutual respect. With a mix of Aramaic and English text, this moving work incorporates ancient and contemporary styles and ideals. The modern hybrid style includes theatrical elements and influences of classical, jazz, and world music. Scored for either treble or mixed choirs with baritone, contralto, and child soprano soloists, the work is accompanied by strings, flutes, hammered dulcimer (cimbalom) or guitar, harp, and a variety of other percussion and world instruments to create its unique sound and presentation. Commissioned by the Manhattan Girls Chorus and artistic director Michelle Oesterle in 2018, this work is socially responsive and shines a light on modern issues affecting our world such as poverty, the refugee crisis, discrimination, and persecution. Ten movements: The Poor in Spirit; The Merciful; The Peacemakers; The Meek; The Pure in Heart; The Blessed; Those Who Mourn; Those Who Hunger and Thirst for Righteousness; Those Who Are Persecuted for Righteousness' Sake; You Are the Light.
