Listen to “The Heart of Night”

Today I’d like to share a recording with you from last week’s Vox Humana concert!

In case you missed it, the concert featured the première of my newest choral piece, The Heart Of Night. Conductor Brian Wismath did a fantastic job leading the choir through this piece. It was a peaceful, ethereal, and inspiring performance! The choir used the space inside the observatory dome to its fullest effect… you can best understand this in the recording by listening to the ends of phrases as the sound fades away. Beautiful!

  1. Thank you for writing such a beautiful piece, Dave.
    It was a glorious way to wake up this a.m.- my family was all still asleep, and I listened while sipping my first cup of coffee of day. Must have been stunning in the Observatory.
    I did try to come to concert but was so bogged down with September schooling duties with Erin and Kate.
    Look forward to seeing you at conference in Oct. 🙂

  2. I’m glad you enjoyed it, Marnie. That sounds like a great way to listen! Thanks for the comment, and I hope school is going well for everybody.

  3. Hi CarmenI like your painting, Canadian art was foendud on a long and growing love and understanding of the country side,Lakes,Oceans, Mountains, Trees and Flowers.Looking at your painting you can feel the murmuring music of the water.The rocks and the sky gives endless compositions and inspiration.The price for the painting should be higher.RegardsKlaus
