More about our December Concert "Winterlude: Songs of Sleep and Repose":

Tuck in for a cozy evening of choral music with Sacred & Profane. Recognizing that winter is often a time of reflection and restoration, our December 2019 concert features sacred and secular music from all eras on the theme of rest and repose. In addition to work by English Renaissance madrigalist John Wilbye, we will celebrate the holiday season with Christmas lullabies by composers from around the world: Herbert Howells (England), Henryk Górecki (Poland), Abbie Betinis (United States), and the world premiere of "Sleep, Baby, Sleep" by Tina Andersson (Sweden). We round out the program with a selection of secular pieces on the theme of sleep. In keeping with our love for Scandinavian music, we will sing Gunnar Erikssons "Norwegian Lullaby" and Jocelyn Hagens arrangement of the dark Icelandic lullaby "Sofu unga ástin mín." We are excited to sing the Russian-American composer and pianist Lera Auerbachs "Lullaby," composed with a unique modal musical voice. We will also perform Sean Crouchs "Lullaby," a setting of a poem about an Afghan father soothing his son to sleep during wartime, and Eric Whitacres "Sleep My Child." Finally, we are thrilled to present the world premiere of Jack Curtis Dubowskys "Sleep."
