#13 The Smell of Still Life

Four different still lifes. On the grass, on the beach, underground, and the last one–just hummed–everywhere. Beautiful stillstand, a cure for a hurried day. A poem by Octavio Paz.

Choir Polyphony needs just four minutes to slow down your heart beat and breath. Cool down. There's just una muchacha y un muchacho. Nothing more.

Composer: Eric Whitacre
Work: A Boy and a Girl
Recording: Polyphony, Stephen Layton
