Recorded LIVE at the Ordway Center for the Performing Arts and anchored by a newly rediscovered song cycle tailored for low voices by Margaret Bonds set to the poetry of Langston Hughes, 'Fields of Wonder' explores the interplay between authors and musicians.

The relationships between composers and poets have been at the center of music-making for hundreds of years. German lieder would be hard to imagine without Goethe, much like West Side Story would be without Sondheim’s lyrics. In a series that showcases smaller groups of voices, Cantus examines interactions between artists – specifically, how composers influence, and are influenced by, the words they set to music.
