"Nocturnes" addresses aspects of the common theme of 'Night'. Morten Lauridsen's setting of Rilke's impassioned and atmospheric 'Sa nuit d'ete' is rich with dense, colorful harmonies, while 'Soneto de la noche' is quiet, serence and folk-like, reflecting the eloquence with which the poet Pablo Neruda speaks of everlasting, eternal love. "Sure on the Shining Night" is a lyrical, beautiful setting of James Agee's well-loved poem. Rilke is the source of the epilogue, 'Voici le soir', bringing 'The Nocturnes' to a quiet end as darkness arrives.
