About "In Memory of..." by Rashaan Rori Allwood, from the composer: “This piece is written as an homage to victims of oppression and hardships. Choose a person or group of persons whose death holds special significance and benefits from awareness. The name chosen should be relevant to your audience. Examples include George Floyd, Ayo Bakole, Breonna Taylor, the Anishinaabe people, etc.” About "The Love of God" by Eric Nelson, from the composer: “For this commission, ‘The Love of God,’ I have taken Frederick Martin Lehman’s text and wedded it to new music for choir and organ, without any reference to the original tune or style period. The choir and the organ engage in a sort of dialogue, joining together only at key moments.”
