Evensong

First line:
See how the moon has risen
composer
first performed by The Dale Warland Singers in December 1990
author of text
translator of text

 
Evensong was given its first performance during The Dale Warland Singers’ ‘Echoes of Christmas’ concert in December 1990. Here Paulus sets a German poem by Matthias Claudius translated for the composer by Albert Ernest Flemming, a writer described as ‘more of a poetic paraphraser than a translator’. There is little to do with Christmas bar a fleeting reference to ‘manger’; the poem is rather more a dormitive prayer, and Paulus finds many musical opportunities to reflect the evocative description of night, the moon and stars, prayer, and rest.
