Is it the long winter nights with the Aurora Borealis? The endless summer twilights? Whatever the influence, the Baltic region inspires composers to write works of ineffable beauty and profound tranquility.
On Saturday, March 9, Musica Sacra will be performing 20th and 21st century choral music of the well-known composers Arvo Pärt, Einojuhani Rautavaara, Henryk Miko?aj Górecki, and Igor Stravinsky. Rounding out the program will be the works of lesser known composers whose works are no-less enchanting for it: Veljo Tormis, Ola Gjeilo, and Vaclovas Augustinas.
