Sleep, My Heart’s Desire
A tender lullaby on a text by Colin Sterne.
Sleep, Holy Babe
A tender Christmas lullaby is combined with a solo trumpet, which is playing “Lo, How a Rose ‘ere Blooming.”
Emmanuel, We Sing Thy Praise
Inspired by the poem “Asleep” by Wilfred Owen, Gibson’s He Sleeps Less Tremulous: A Lament for English horn and string quartet was given a read-through on Nov. 17 by Sarah Bloxham, Tom McEvilley, Robert Matsuda, Matthew Witmer, and Roger Lebow, recorded by engineer Paul Sobosky.
