Exsultate!, a chorale located in Venice, Florida, has commissioned composer David Brunner to expand the collection of Wendell Berry poetry that he set to music. Titled A Timbered Choir: The Sabbath Poems, 1979-1997, the collection already included “The Circles of Our Lives," “The Wheel," and “We Clasp Hands." First published in 1998, it can be sampled at http://davidbrunner.com/samples/music-for-mixed-choirs/
On April 14th, Exsultate! will perform the Berry-based pieces by David Brunner along with Randall Thompson's Frostiana.
