A repost: University of Utah Singers perform “Sure on This Shining Night”

June 19, 2016

Performed by the University of Utah Singers, here is a stunning performance of the Morton Lauridsen arrangement of Samuel Barber’s piece Sure on This Shining Night.  The words for this, by James Agee, are something else as well; I will post them below the video.

 

Sure on this shining night
Of star made shadows round,
Kindness must watch for me
This side the ground.
The late year lies down the north.
All is healed, all is health.
High summer holds the earth.
Hearts all whole.
Sure on this shining night I weep for wonder wand’ring far alone
Of shadows on the stars.
