Music From the Dark Side

« previous episode | next episode »

Friday, December 13, 2013

Listen to music from the dark side for this New Sounds program. Listen to music associated with Tenebrae, the  Christian service held during Holy Week in the spring where candles are extinguished gradually until all that is left is darkness.  There’s a work by Bruce Dessner played by Kronos Quartet and featuring  Sufjan Stevens, “Tenebre,” along with the Irish choir Anúna performing Tenebrae in Gaelic.  Also, listen to nocturnes from the band Rachel’s, and a work by Missy Mazzoli.  Then, hear “Dark Was the Night,” a piece of Phil Kline’s millennial mass “John the Revelator” and a short dark piece from Brian Eno as well.
