A Kipling PassionBut Who Shall Return Us Our Children?
This spring, CANW reprises this concert-length oratorio in a revised version for choir with vocal soloists and chamber orchestra composed by CANW’s 2016-17 Composer-in-Residence, John Muehleisen.
A Kipling Passion commemorates the centennial of World War I in a historical account of Lieutenant John Kipling’s 1918 death, and its impact on his famous parents, Rudyard and Carrie Kipling. Muehleisen uses the passion form to explore how we might find healing in the face of unspeakable tragedy.
