Thomas Goss' setting of “Across the Red Sky” manifests the cries of birds, the cool uncertainty of the evening sky, and the gentle flapping of bird’s wings. The vocal line looks back across a century of art song in its character, shaping the melodic curve along the arc of Mansfield’s reflective disquiet and wonder at the beauty of nature.
