From the opening strains of René Clausen’s Tonight Eternity Alone to the closing bars of Stephen Paulus’ Pilgrim’s Hymn, “heavenly” describes the entire experience. A selection of new yet accessible compositions by John Tavener, Eric Whitacre, Morten Lauridsen, Steven Stucky and Howard Helvey is highlighted by the premiere of a new work by Stephen Mager. Anchoring the concert is the striking and meditative ‘Mass for Double Chorus’ by Swiss composer Frank Martin.
