Sarah Moyer sang a time-stopping “But oh, what art can teach”: golden-toned, note-perfect, and expressively pure....a vocal quartet – led by Moyer’s elastic soprano – simply floated their entries, while shadows crept across the score’s dark, central part.
The “Sanctus” was especially moving, as soprano Sarah Moyer’s light, shimmering tone floated above the group with angelic lyricism.
The purity and flawless range of Sarah Moyer’s high soprano brought the narrative of “One December Night” to vivid life.
The performance wrapped up with a return to Mr Nørgård’s 1970s infinite loops, as well as a return to the much earlier sound world of the Baroque era, with Seadrift of 1978. The Whitman poem mentioned above was here heard through the truly incredible voice of soprano Sarah Moyer.

Solo turns by ...soprano Sarah Moyer were not only beautifully executed but rendered with moving restraint.
