Dusk (from I Dream a World)


Text by Langston Hughes
Music by Dave Brubeck

This wonderful piece by Dave Brubeck is part of a series of titles taken from his larger work, “I Dream a World.” Brubeck, in his world-famous musical style, has brought to life the powerful poetic text by Langston Hughes. In the world today, where we dream of a world of peace and harmony, the pieces are a joy to every soul that hears them. Although this work is a bit challenging, Brubeck does a wonderful job of making contemporary music accessible to choirs.

Commissioned by the Trenton Children’s Chorus and the Choirs for Children and Youth of Nassau Presbyterian Church, Princeton, NJ, Sue Ellen Page, conductor.
