HVP: Voices of Light (The Passion of Joan of Arc)

Guest Conductor Christine Howlett with Vassar Choir & soloists

An oratorio with silent film combines a performance of Richard Einhorn’s 1994 Voices of Light, with Carl Theodor Dreyer’s 1928 silent film classic The Passion of Joan of Arc. Dreyer’s depiction of the trial and execution of Joan is rightfully canonized as one of cinema’s masterpieces and Einhorn’s composition “sublimely matches one of the great films of all time” (NY Times).
