Yet, I Will Rejoice

Yet I Will Rejoice is the premiere recording of the choral and vocal chamber music of Jerry Casey whose recent flurry of performances has shown her popularity in central Ohio and other venues. Mrs. Casey has had commissions from such diverse groups as Columbus Alumnae Chapter of Sigma Alpha Iota (SAI), Iowa Composers Forum (ICF), Ohio Federated Music Clubs (OFMC), Columbus Women’s Orchestra, a church in New Jersey, and a Ministers’ Chorus from Pennsylvania. She has received the ASCAP Plus Award annually since 1996.

The music of Jerry Casey is lyrical even when dissonant. Harmonies are frequently modal and quartal. Word painting, mood setting, sharp accents, driving rhythms, and judicious use of sudden silence all help enhance the meaning of the words. The sacred works on this CD have texts that resonate to all peoples such as trust overcoming calamity, the desire to praise and hope, the question of what life is really all about, the joy in a newborn child, the search for serenity, and the recognition of the power of the Creator. Two of the secular works evoke the spirit of the fall season; one is a three-fold look at love, and one is a dark call to death.
