Jeffrey Cobb: Absalom

Books | Choral, SATB

Publisher: G. Schirmer
Composer: Jeffrey Cobb
Format: Sheet Music | Vocal Work

This 8-minute work, set entirely in Latin, recounts King David's grief at the death of his son Absalom. Opening with a fiery Piano introduction, a solo Tenor emerges from the echoing Keyboard clusters, followed by a mournful choral response. The music then moves into a molto agitato Dies Irae, with angry dissonance and mixed meters, eventually resolving into a peaceful and tranquil Requiem Aeternam. A powerful and dramatic work for advanced ensembles! Duration: ca. 8:20.
