Choral Arts Ensemble of Portland PresentsElaine Hagenberg’s The Music of Stillness
In Virtual Choir
This video features Elaine Hagenberg’s haunting The Music of Stillness, drawn from lyrics by Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Sara Teasdale. Inspired by a cold and starry winter’s evening, this composition captures a singular moment of peace and serenity with breathtaking clarity. Elaine Hagenberg fits perfectly into the mold of composers we like to highlight – contemporary, up-and-coming, and creating timeless arrangements of beautiful lyrics. We are sure that you will hear more from her in CAE concert seasons to come.
The pandemic has affected us all in a variety of ways. We offer this recording and video as a holiday gift and hope that through this music you too find a moment of peace and serenity.
