Commissioned by the Santa Fe Desert Chorale, this piece by Swiss composer Ivo Antognini is otherworldly, impressionistically evocative, full of color and sumptuous harmonies, even including whistling within the texture of the music. The text is a beautiful WW1-era poem by Sara Teasdale – always a favorite. This a cappella piece presents a worthy challenge, and the reward is worth the effort for both chorus and listeners.
