David Ludwig: The New Colossus

Books | Choral, SATB

Publisher: G. Schirmer
Composer: David Ludwig
Format: Sheet Music | Vocal Work

Written for conductor Judith Clurman, David Ludwig sets the poem found on The Statue of Liberty in a moving and passionate style. The sentiment of welcome that poet Lazarus - herself an immigrant - conveys is sensitive and at the same time powerful and David has skilfully captured this emotion. Beginning in a sombre, chant-like unison, it opens to harmony at the most famous line "I lift my lamp, beside the Golden Door" repeating this line in a crescendo to the end. It was performed at the 2013 Inauguration Prayer Service at St. John's Church in Washington, D.C.
