Harp and percussion set the stage for Eleanor Wilner’s Winter Solstice Carol, in which solo baritone introduces a festive subject which inspires polyphony in the strings and women’s chorus.

“a spill of notes from the mountain spruce,

green through all the time of white–

how bright the darkness is tonight!”

How Bright the Darkness is also available arranged for SATB choir.

This piece has been recorded on the Pentatone label by the Volti Chorus and New Century Chamber Orchestra, conducted by Dawn Harms.  To buy the album and listen to excerpts, click here.
