NIGHT OF LIGHT is the latest CD from Cypriot composer Sophia Serghi featuring five of her works for orchestra and voice: Night of Light, a musical reaction to Easter in Manhattan and a document of the composer’s spiritual growth; Serghi’s earliest work for orchestra and voice, Cantus Integritatis, comprised of four introspective and meditative movements based on the composer’s own Latin poetry; Full Moon Haiku, a collaboration with poet Nancy Schoenberger setting the mensal characteristics of the full moon to music; Ikon, inspired by an unusual Ikon in Paris; and Night of Light: Reprise. Serghi’s compositions are adeptly performed by the Moravian Philharmonic Orchestra under conductor Vit Micka, with sopranos Alena Hellerová and Lucie Silkenova and mezzo soprano Eliska Weissova.
