Last performed in 1940, this oratorio gave Miss Branscombe an avenue to express her great passion for the understanding of the pilgrims' journey to their new country.  Filled with love, conflict and deep seated faith of the travelers, her rich romantic music is a reminder that the word composer is gender neutral. 

Seemingly lost to the world of music by the mid 1950s, Pilgrims of Destiny is brought to life in the 21st century by Clark University's choir directed by Dan Ryan.  

Please join us on Saturday, April 27th.
