    A NATIVE HILL
    a world premiere from Gavin Bryars
    based on the essay by Wendell Berry

    The Presbyterian Church of Chestnut Hill, Philadelphia
    pre-concert talk with Donald and Gavin @ 4pm in the Burleigh Cruikshank Memorial Chapel

    “Eating is a political act.” — Wendell Berry

    Finally, the premiere of the long-anticipated follow-up to Gavin’s "The Fifth Century", which won us our first Grammy. "A Native Hill" will be Gavin’s most substantial work for unaccompanied choir. A concert-length musical essay based on early writings of American author and activist Wendell Berry; what may at first seem pastoral contains a powerful contemporary relevance — a metaphysical and even political force. "A Native Hill" offers meditations on how life can be experienced, with detailed descriptions of the minutiae of rural existence; as such, simple natural events reveal themselves as metaphors for universal truths.
