Robert Kyr: A Time For Life

An Environmental Oratorio

with Third Angle new Music Ensemble

Just after Earth Day (April 22), Cappella Romana reprises the exciting and innovative work by Northwest composer Robert Kyr, A Time for Life, commissioned by Cappella Romana for its premiere in 2007.

Kyr’s work is inspired by the Greek Orthodox Service for the Environment from Mt. Athos and invocations of indigenous peoples of North America.

A Time for Life was performed again in 2009 at the symposium at the University of Oregon on Ethics, Religion, and the Environment organized by the chairs of the UNESCO Intercultural Dialogue Program.

Cappella Romana is excited to release the debut recording of this work, for eight solo voices with three string players of the Third Angle New Music Ensemble (Ron Blessinger, artistic director).

You will also hear Medieval Greek and Latin chants on the theme of living in harmony with nature.
