"The Evening Lamps Alight" at Gretna Music

  • Mt. Gretna Playhouse 200 Pennsylvania Avenue Mount Gretna, PA, 17064 United States (map)

"The Evening Lamps Alight" was commissioned by Gretna Music in honor of the 125th anniversary of the town of Mount Gretna, PA. The work is an adventurous chorale prelude on the Chautauqua hymn ‘Day is dying in the west.’ It takes its title from a particularly beautiful turn of phrase in the hymn’s first verse: ‘wait and worship while the night / sets the evening lamps alight / through all the sky.’ Tickets are available at Gretna Music's site.
