Charles Wood: St. Mark Passion

Charles Wood’s St. Mark Passion was composed in the span of 9 days at the request of the Rev. Dr. Eric Milner-White (then Dean of King’s College, Cambridge and creator of the Service of Nine Lessons and Carols at King’s). The St. Mark Passion, a large-scale work for soloists, choir, and organ, traces Jesus’ final days from The Last Supper to the Crucifixion. As with the passions of J.S. Bach, hymns are interspersed throughout the narrative to draw the audience into the action.

Cappella Clausura: Eve and Adam

Rising MIT composer Elena Ruehr’s “Eve,” composed in 2014, takes its familiar text from Genesis, but rather than the traditional retelling, poses an honest question: was gaining knowledge of good and evil such a terrible thing? “In a sense,” the composer writes, “[Eve] is choosing light over darkness, sight over blindness. It’s an astonishing idea.” Paired with Arvo Pärt’s “Adam’s Lament”.
