AN ENCHANTING MUSICAL JOURNEY FROM SUNSET TO STARLIGHT… AND BEYOND TO THE LAND OF DREAMS
Night-time is a magical place of heightened imagination. It is a land of shadow, wonder, pleasure and rest. This wintry evening program brings together old and new choral classics to transport you to the realm of dreams and stars.
Bookending the program are two very different songs by Australian composers that transcend the need for words. Leek’s deceptively simple At Sunset captures breathless wonder, suspended in a uniquely Australian twilight, at the crossing from light to darkness. While Anne Boyd’s extended work As I Crossed a Bridge of Dreams completes the nocturnal journey to an altered level of consciousness.
In between be entranced by some favourites from Western Europe celebrating the wakening hours, before contemporary giants Whitacre and Esenvalds lead us to our slumber.
