On June 19, students from the combined choirs of Davidson Fine Arts Magnet School performed at Lincoln Center in New York City with members of the Columbia County Choral Society and an orchestra. For about 30 minutes, we listened to Incarnatio Mysteria , which was written, composed and conducted by Timothy Powell, Davidson's choral director (I am not related).
I was in awe to have been given the privilege to hear this piece, which was so heavenly, tender and pure that it reduced me to tears. The tempos and melodies of the different movements of the piece ushered me through periods of worship, awe and praise as they sang about the mysterious and wonderful incarnation of Christ -- all in Latin.
Kudos and deep respect are to be given to Dr. Powell for the amazing talent he possesses, and for his sharing it with our children at Davidson. As a result of his leadership, the choral students at Davidson perform at a level that is unmatched by many adult choirs.
Thank you, Dr. Powell, for the honor of being able to witness my daughters perform your beautiful music in New York.
