Lull the Solemn Night (2011)

Mixed Chorus (SATB) a cappella | 5 mins
setting of "Carol" by Thomas Merton

Thomas Merton's poem conjures a scene of quiet stillness around a monumental event. The voices mimic rustling winds and sheep's bells, close by and far off.

First performed by San Francisco Choral Artists, December, 2011
