Dusk, from Hold Fast to Dreams (1998)

Text by Langston Hughes
Music by Dave Brubeck

SATB, accompanied

This wonderful piece by Dave Brubeck is part of a series of titles taken from his larger work, “Hold Fast to Dreams.” 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.
