Shining Night

Lee Wright, music director


While music about the day-lit hours can be wondrous and expansive, or lively and charming, there is something about the darkness, the moon, and the stars that makes the evening an undeniably enchanting and captivating source of inspiration. In this scintillating program of night music, Madrigalia explores a variety of repertoire including several staples of the 20th Century choral canon, arrangements of African-American spirituals, works by some of the 21st Century’s most prominent composers, a few lesser known gems, and two premiere recordings: Gwyneth Walker’s Every Night When the Sun Goes Down (1996), and Cary Ratcliff’s By Moonlight (2009) with the composer at the piano.

We hope that you will find it to be an enchanting listen and a recording that you can return to time after time to find a moment of peace.             LW
