In a nationwide collaboration with The Crossing, Volti, and Notre Dame Vocale, Cantori New York gives the New York premiere of a joint commission from Gregory Spears. Exploring the search for truth amidst the uncertainty of the modern world, Spears's three-movement work sets poems by Denise Levertov, Thomas Merton, and Keith Garabian. Garabian does homage to gay rights activist and filmmaker Derek Jarman, whose cottage (and garden) hung precariously between a nuclear power plant and the sea. With string quartet. Opulent choral settings by Irish composers Stanford and Victory open the program.
