Four Canticles of the Sky: "In the Arctic sky, the low angle of the sun and heavy ice crystals in the air often produce vivid halos, arcs, and sundogs. Sometimes these phenomena create the illusion of multiple suns. Sky with Four Suns' is a musical evocation of such an apparition, from sunrise to sunset.
