Luengen: In tiefen Nächten

Recorded October 2022 at Christ Church Cathedral

Part two of the 2022 Bridge of Dreams:

Ramona Luengen's incredible work blurs the lines between art song and choral music. With soaring melodies and rich chords, the singer dives into Rilke's text, in which he seeks connection - connection to each other, and connection to something greater. The music embodies the searching and yearning through cold, distant valleys along lonely pathways, yet in the end, we raise our hands "openly into the wind, so that they may branch out like a tree." In this moment, we find the connection to the world around us - "a world reduced to dust - from distant stars" falling, at peace, as gently as a spring rain.
