The Showing of Love, a new music theater work based on the writings
The Showing of Love, a new music theater work based on the writings of Julian of Norwich, with music by Brooke Joyce, will be performed on Sunday, March 1 at 2 p.m. at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Decorah. Joyce is the Composer-in-Residence at Luther College and the Director of Music at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church.
Lasting just over one hour, this work combines live performance with electronically manipulated natural sounds, such as wind, water, fire and air, to animate the words of Julian of Norwich (c.1342-1416), the first woman to write a book in the English language.
Featured performer is Portland, Oregon based mezzo-soprano Lisa Neher, for whom the work was composed. Neher, a well-known composer, is also in high demand in the US and abroad as a concert soloist.
