CLOSE your eyes or turn off the lights and listen to the Lund University Male Voice Choir sing the traditional Swedish choral “Aftonen” (The Evening) by Hugo Alfvén for the aural translation of darkness descending in still countryside.
The forest is silent; the sky is clear.
Hark to the lullaby of the cowherd’s horn
Echoing among valleys and green hills
As the sun quietly descends.
— Herman Sätherberg (1812-97)
