Sky with Four Suns. The Dark Wind. Dream of the Canyon Wren.

These are among the fourteen atmospheric titles that comprise this hour-long magnum opus of Pulitzer-laureate John Luther Adams. Commissioned by The Crossing in 2012, the work has lived in our minds and hearts, awaiting its revival – a unique aural kaleidoscope in which four choirs surround the audience, their canons unfolding across landscapes of time, as the “wind” swirls magically around the room.
