Lyrica opens the season with the serene and impressionistic In Terra Pax by twentieth century British composer, Gerald Finzi. Written just two years before Finzi’s death in 1956, this composition skillfully juxtaposes poetry of Robert Bridges with the familiar Christmas passage from St. Luke. In Terra Pax is a work of intense emotion, radiant beauty, and optimism and the familiar narrative of the Christmas story is woven into this miniature masterpiece. Stunning new works by Norwegian composer, Ola Gjeilo, including The Rose, Ecce Novum, and Tundra will refresh the spirit as the Christmas season is welcomed.
