America's only mystic composer

mtemccrary

Morten Lauridsen composed these pieces of sacred text and seemingly ancient and other-worldly beauty specifically for the renowned choral conductor Paul Salamunovich. It challenges the soul to believe in the possibility of impossible beauty, in humanity. It convicts me because of its inspiration each time I listen to it. This is my favorite recording of Lauridsen's work and is a testament to the tenacious and impeccable conducting of Paul Salamunovich. In a genre filled with pretty sounding music and nice feelings, these works transcend the choral world, they are buoyant gems, beacons of light to the soul.

Minimalism and gregorian, marriage made in Cal.

My overall impression of the piece was minimalism in diguise of gregorian chant. Repititive melismatic flow of the ancient tune through out the piece. Oh, singing a bass section in the choir, I shudder whenever a note above F in the bass clef. One may have to castrate some members to produce needed sound.
