Deep in the night

Composer: Chydenius, Jussi
Code: 9780193530805

Originally published in Sun, Moon, Sea, and Stars, this piece sets a poem by Sara Teasdale that likens a heart seeking its love to a swallow’s cry. Chydenius’s rich harmonies, syncopated melodies, and modal inflections paint an image of the starry night, while the underpinning bass ostinato provides rhythmic drive.
