Exposed on the mountains of the heart – All Saints Concert

At this year’s traditional All Saints Concert, Mogens Dahl Chamber Choir will celebrate the hope of light, which can only be seen in the dark. This late Sunday evening, when we remember those we have lost, is also a reminder that the classical vocal music emerged out of the sacred ambiance and the monks’ nightly chanted prayer. The spirit of the song does not seek to overthrow the silence, but rather to sing the duet with it, so that the silence comes forward and resonates along. The beauty of the tones points beyond – they lift themselves against the starry sky and eternity.

All the concert’s works are from recent times and refer to a longing back to a more devotional understanding of existence. The music is by Arvo Pärt, the Danes Bent Sørensen and Bernhard Lewkovitch and of the choir’s Composer in Residence Sven-David Sandström.
