Contemporary composer David Lang’s love fail has been called a meditation on the timelessness of love weaving texts from Tristan and Isolde, adapted by the composer from a variety of source texts, together with contemporary poetry by Lydia Davis. The SSAA piece was originally scored for a vocal quartet, and in our performance, audiences will be delighted to hear the full ensemble as well as a variety of quartets and octets, showing off the range of voices of Oriana. This performance marks the Canadian première of the choral arrangement.
