the little match girl passion


In producing an update of his Pulitzer-winning the little match girl passion, composer David Lang sought to deliver "...a leaner version of the piece, a more human version, one that emphasizes every breath, and that heightens the individuality of each singer."

Featuring inspired performances by singers Molly NetterKate MaroneyGene Stenger and Dashon Burton, who are joined by the renowned Trio Mediaeval — on the bonus track "I want to live," as well as an updated version of "just (after song of songs)" — and Sarah Brailey, performing the album premiere of "let me come in," this new recording accomplishes everything that Lang set out to explore, opening up fresh vistas of accessibility to a beloved work in modern choral music.
