In October 2007 Paul Hillier and Theatre of Voices premiered David Lang's the little match girl passion at Carnegie Hall. People in the audience that night knew they had heard something special. But this special? Only a few months later the piece won the Pulitzer Prize, then the recording on Harmonia Mundi won a Grammy, and the piece has gone on to become a hit around the world.

Carnegie Hall and Stanford Lively Arts bring back Theatre of Voices and the little match girl passion, along with the premiere of a major new work they have commissioned just for the occasion. On January 25 (Stanford) and 27 (Carnegie Hall), Lang's Pulitzer Prize-winning work will be followed by the World Premiere of death speaks, for an ensemble of indie composer-performers: Bryce Dessner (The National), Shara Worden (My Brightest Diamond), Owen Pallett and Nico Muhly.
