Holy Week Festival
A clear midnight
Dum medium silentium
Lugums naktij 'Prayer to the night'
Into the Night
The Choir of Royal Holloway take you on a musical journey 'Into the night'. An exotic mix of sacred and secular music features composers from the USA, Lithuania and Latvia.
The opening works by Eriks Esenvalds and Rene Clausen set evocative American poetry by Sara Teasdale and Walt Whitman. Appropriately for Holy Week the images of night and death are intertwined as the programme moves from Morton Lauridsen's three Nocturnes to a setting of the Tenebrae responsory by Lithuanian Vytautas Miskinis and concludes with settings of contemporary Latvian poetry.
