We’ll hear a bunch of new takes on the Vespers, most not involving the voice or prayer, yet still the music captures the sense of ritual, when things become dark and still.  Listen for music by Oscar Bettison - his "Gauze Vespers," Wendy Carlos arranging Monteverdi, film music by John Zorn, and something from the Ivo Haarla Quintet.
