Nocturnes addresses aspects of the common theme of 'Night'. Morten Lauridsen's setting of Rilke's impassioned and atmospheric Sa Nuit D'été is rich with dense, colourful harmonies, while Soneto De La Noche is quiet, serene and folk-like, reflecting the eloquence with which the poet, Pablo Neruda, speaks of everlasting, eternal love. Sure On This Shining Night is a lyrical, beautiful setting of James Agee's well known love poem. We return to Rilke in the epilogue, Voici Le Soir, bringing the Nocturnes to a quiet end as darkness arrives.
A Piano accompaniment is included where required.
