Piano, Mixed Voices Choral Music
Morten Lauridsen's Nocturnes addresses aspects of the common theme of 'Night' in arrangements for accompanied SATB chorus.闂 His setting of Rilke's impassioned and atmosphereic Sa nuit d'ete is rich with dense, colourful harmonies, while Soneto de la noche is quiet, serene and fold-like, reflecting the eloquence with which the poet Pablo Neruda speaks of everlasting eternal love. Sure on the shining night is a lyrical, beautiful setting of James Agee's well-loved poem. Rilke is the source of the epilogue, Voici le soir, bringing the Nocturnes to a quiet end as darkness arrives. The Choral Programme Series is a well-esatablished programming tool for many choirs as it offers a wealth of fresh material from many eras and in many styles. Also offering great value for money as each volume in the series provides up to forty minutes of music
Sa Nuit D'ete (accompanied); Soneto De La Noche (a capella); Sure On This Shining Night(accompanied); Epilogue - Voice Le Soir (accompanied).
