MSU Children’s Choir, under the direction of Central’s former Chancel Choir Director, Alison Geesey Lagan, will present Francisco Nunez’s “Misa Pequena para Ninos” at the 10:00 worship service.
The MSU Children’s Choir (MSUCC) is the premiere touring ensemble of the CMS Children and Youth Choir Program. It is designed for treble singers (with unchanged voices) in grades 5-9 with a strong passion and commitment for singing. The group performs a variety of repertoire from varying styles, languages, and time periods.
Misa Pequeña Para Niños (Little Mass for Children)
This Spanish setting of the Catholic mass was written by Francisco J. Nuñez after the passing of his father when Nuñez was 14 years old. Its haunting melodies and modal harmonies create a feeling of meditation and spiritual transcendence. Each of the mass’s five movements creates a unique atmosphere.
