Regents Professor Emeritus, Dominick Argento

Another National Treasure at Minnesota


Margaret Soltan, in her blog University Diaries, writes:


The other piece on the program was the world premiere of Dominick Argento’s Evensong in memory of his wife. UD cried at the end: two neatly symmetical tears, one out of each eye. She thinks it’s because of some of the words Argento wrote:

"[P]ray that an angel will stir up our hearts, will trouble our souls and move us to comfort the afflicted… [T]he gift of love comes at the cost of everything we are, and all that we will ever be. Giving it is the greatest blessing within our power."
