ABOUT THE PIECE:

U. North Carolina Greensboro under the direction of Cort McClaren performs “Paschal Dances” by David Gillingham. “Paschal Dances is based on the first two lines of the famous Gregorian Easter sequence,”Victim paschali laudes” (Praises to the Paschal Victim). Motives and phrases of the chant are used to unify the work which comprises an Invocation, 4 Dances, 2 Interludes, and a Benediction.”

– D. Gillingham.
