Richard Moriarty: Missa Adsum! Celebrating Women; We That Wait

The American composer Richard Moriarty (born in Boston in 1946) spent his professional life as a pathologist, taking up composition upon his retirement, as a student of Adolphus Hailstork and Richard Danielpour. His deeply felt orchestral song-cycle We That Wait, using poems from the American Civil War written by women, and the expansive, exuberant Missa Adsum! Celebrating Women are both grand statements in a proud American tradition of Neo-Romanticism – accessible, direct and sincere.
