The Night : SATB choir

by Lachlan Skipworth (2017)

Work Overview

I was drawn to this and two other poems by Rainer Maria Rilke as their subject matter, although somewhat dark, resonates with a sense of delicate beauty amidst their spiritual undertones. 'The Night' is a largely homophonic ode to darkness in a close harmonic setting.
