Oct 23 – Four Prayers by Rorem, II. Second Prayer

Ned Rorem, born on this day in 1923, has been called “the world’s best composer of art songs.” This affinity for melody is clear in Four Prayers for flute and piano. Christopher Chaffee is the Professor of Flute at Wright State University and great friend of the University of South Carolina Flute Studio. His album Four Prayers is available from Open G Records.

Performed by Christopher Chaffee, flute and Joshua Nemith, piano.
