“I felt my legs were praying”—World Premiere

Cantors Assembly

Louisville, KY, United States

Louisville Marriott Downtown

8:00 PM

As part of the 2019 Cantors Assembly Convention, Voces Novae chorus of Louisville, Deborah Dierks, conductor, will present the premiere of "I felt my legs were praying," a new choral work by Gerald Cohen based on a text by Abraham Joshua Heschel, commissioned for the convention by the John Leopold and Martha Dellheim Endowment Fund.

“And yet our legs uttered songs,” is based on the words of Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel reflecting on his march from Selma with Dr. Martin Luther King. This is combined with a text from Psalm 35, calling for us to work with our entire beings and bodies to work for social justice.
