This week’s Musical Meditation will be the final installment before taking a break for the summer. With late, warm evenings upon us, I’m thinking of Sure On This Shining Night by the quintessential and vastly underrated American composer, Samuel Barber.

The text, by James Agee, invites us to turn our gaze upward and reflect on what we have endured.  It is my sincere prayer that these long, warm summer evenings find you with the late year behind you, healed and in good health.
