Another one of her favorite compositions was "Scenes from the Life of a Martyr," an oratorio for chorus, orchestra, narrator, and four soloists that was composed in memory of Martin Luther King Jr. The oratorio, which NPR once referred to as her "most ambitious work," had its premiere in 1982 and was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize. Unfortunately, although Emory University's Manuscript, Archive, and Rare Book Library has several live recordings of "Scenes from the Life of a Martyr," mostly on audiocassette, from Moore's personal collection of papers, there don't appear to be any recordings of it commercially available. There are, however, some recordings available on Spotify and YouTube of her other compositions. To listen to a playlist I put together of her compositions and the compositions of other African-American women, go to citypaper.com/moore.
