The Crossing: “A Native Hill”

October 13, 2019

Grammy-winning chamber choir The Crossing gives the world premiere of “A Native Hill.” Adapting the early writings of author and activist Wendell Berry, composer Gavin Bryars has created a “concert-length musical essay” with enduring metaphysical insights.

21CM Takeaway: “A Native Hill” is the follow-up piece to Bryars’ “The Fifth Century,” the commission that won The Crossing its first Grammy. This performance includes a pre-concert talk.
