battle hymns


A soldier’s letter to his wife, a speech by Abraham Lincoln, lyrics from Stephen Foster songs – these are the words of battle hymns, Pulitzer Prize-winning composer David Lang’s innovative choral exploration of the feelings of people in times of war. On May 15, The Collegiate Chorale will present the NY Premiere of this unusual and haunting work, performed within the cavernous Hangar Deck of the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum.
