43. Lux Aurumque NEW!

Eric Whitacre

The Master Chorale of Tampa Bay, Jo-Michael Scheibe, conductor

One of the composer's most important choral works, this setting is a piece of elegant simplicity. The tight harmonies require a well-trained a cappella choir. Moderately difficult.

HL08501418 SATB divisi, a cappella
HL08501528 TTBB a cappella

Duration: Approx. 3:05

44. Leonardo Dreams of His Flying Machine NEW!

Eric Whitacre

Brigham Young University Singers; Ronald Staheli, conductor

One of the hallmark works by contempo-rary master Eric Whitacre, this masterpiece features a dazzling text by Charles Anthony Silvestri (text author of Sleep). The remarkable libretto bréve explores da Vinci's dreams of flying and incorporates Italian fragments drawn directly from da Vinci's own notebooks, while the refined music blends elements of Italian madrigal and contemporary style to reflect the elegance of the text, creating an exotic hybrid of old and new. In Italian and English. Absolutely magnificent!

HL08501444 SSATB & Percussion

Duration: Approx. 8:45
