Presented by Green Box Arts Festival at Church in the Wildwood

A Forest Compline: Songs of Light and Shadow with conductor Deborah Jenkins Teske

A compline is a service of evening prayers forming part of the Divine Office of the Western Christian Church, traditionally chanted before retiring for the night. Interpreting this definition more broadly, the Colorado Vocal Arts Ensemble will present a concert inspired by the Summer Solstice and exploring the intersections of light and dark. Drawn from sacred and secular choral traditions from many parts of the world, the program will celebrate the turning wheel of the seasons, contemplate the mysteries of the divine, and revel in the beauty of the earth under the Midsummer sun.

Program Highlights:

James MacMillan, O Radiant Dawn

Phillip Moore, Evening Prayers

Valts Puce Gaismena, ausa (Dawn in Breaking)

Randall Thomspon, The Light of Stars

Ola Gjeilo Northern Lights

Michael McGlynn The Wild Song

Other works by Johannes Brahms, Samuel Barber, and more
