George Case, conductor

Minnesota composer and former Cantus singer, Paul Rudoi is composing a concert length work entitled Our Transcendental Passion, with a libretto based on the words of Thoreau, Emerson, as well as those of lesser known and marginalized voices, Margaret Fuller and Elizabeth Cady Stanton. Just as Bach's Passions allowed German audiences to remember their Lutheran heritage, this work will allow American audiences the ability to consider Sacred Harp as a bedrock of musical material in connection with a movement that was spiritual yet secular, historical yet philosophical, personal yet universal.
