Reflecting on the text by Sara Teasdale, the composer remarks: "'Evening' carried me off on wings of birds and brought me to a place that I have only seen in my imagination — the green foot of a mountain on the shore of the sea, a blue sky with a few streaks of white, the sunset and a self-satisfied warm wind that drifts into sleep, birds, and, oh, this beautifully scented air... Summer. Stepping over the threshold of one evening." This setting, for SSAATTBB choir with soprano solo, was commissioned by the Latvian Radio Choir. Duration: 3’30”
