Hymnody of Earth

This production sets the poetry of Kentucky writer and farmer Wendell Berry to music by Malcolm Dalglish. A chorus of young people sing about a deep love for the Earth and the people and creatures who inhabit it. Both the poetry and the combination of words and music offer a wealth of opportunities for classroom discussion about the creation and function of art. The performance features the Bloomington Youth Chorus, the Lexington Children’s Chorus, The Anglicantors, Dalglish (on hammer dulcimer), and Glen Velez (percussion).
