There will be no preconcert lecture for this performance. Arian Khaefi will introduce the program at the beginning of the concert.
Path of Miracles is a 60-minute a cappella work inspired by the Camino de Santiago, or Way of St. James, the most enduring Roman Catholic pilgrimage and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Working under a commission from the noted choral ensemble Tenebrae, Talbot composed on texts from the Roman Catholic liturgy, medieval manuscripts and other historic and cultural documents, woven together by contemporary Canadian poet Robert Dickinson.
The result evokes the extreme trials and profound ecstasies of a thousand-mile spiritual journey on foot. It also hints at the curious evolution of a rich multicultural legend. While firmly grounded in the European choral tradition, Path of Miracles is sung in seven languages and uses vocal styles from around the world. After its premiere in 2005, Path of Miracles quickly developed a reputation for mesmerizing singers and audiences alike.
