Life and death are but a breath and a whisper.  Explore 20th-century American concepts of mortality through the juxtaposition of two classics from the choral canon.   Experience the Judeo-Christian Creation story, as related in the book of Genesis, through the ears of one of America's most iconic composers, Aaron Copland.  Then let the poetry of Walt Whitman's "Whispers of Heavenly Death," combined with the haunting melodies of Steven Stucky, bring new life to a glorious Renaissance motet.  This is music to inspire the mind and fill the soul.
