The waiting is over: finally our own new work from Estonian composer Toivo Tulev. His libretto is an exploration of wonder, beginning with Walt Whitman’s 'A child says, What is the grass? fetching it to me with full hands.'  We reprise a chamber version of James Primosch’s sensational Mass for the Day of St. Thomas Didymus from MoM 2014, and sing Pelle Gudmundsen-Holmgreen’s raucous and fantastic Three Stages, as we look forward to a new work he is composing for The Crossing’s MoM 2016.
