In his piece from 1980, En ny himmel och en ny jord (A New Heaven and a New Earth), composer Sven-David Sandström paints a vision of a new life, of looking at one another with fresh eyes, of a new way of living. The title of this piece is also the motto for our concert. Can we start anew in a post-pandemic era?
The programme features a variety of expression, from the the Romantic sweetness of Robert Pearsall’s Lay a garland to great drama in Ulrika Emanuelsson’s fiery Min tunga jublar (My tongue rejoices), with its text drawn from the Gospel about the first Pentecost and the disciples speaking in different tongues.
