Eric Whitacre's choral music has become a worldwide musical sensation. His CD release, Light & Gold, on Decca Records, presents a new collection of works conducted by the composer himself. This book of pieces for mixed choir presents an inspiring selection from the disc, including favourites such as the timeless Lux Aurumque, the beautifully reflective Sleep and A Boy and a Girl, and - published together here for the first time - Whitacre's dramatic and powerful setting of three poems by e.e. cummings: 'Three Songs of Faith'.

  1. Lux Aurumque
  2. The Seal Lullaby
  3. A Boy and a Girl
  4. I Will Wade Out
  5. Hope, Faith, Life, Love
  6. I Thank You God For Most This Amazing Day
  7. Water Night
  8. Nox Aurumque
  9. Sleep

Eric Whitacre is one of the most popular and performed composers of his generation. His works are loved by choirs all over the globe, and he has won numerous composition awards. Whitacre is also in great demand as a conductor: his Virtual Choir was a massive YouTube hit, and his new professional choir, the Eric Whitacre Singers, forms the core ensemble for his disc Light & Gold, performing alongside the Kings's SIngers, Laudibus and the Pavao Quartet.

'What hits you straight between the eyes is the honesty, optimism and sheer belief that passes any pretension. This is music that can actually make you smile' - Robert Hollingworth BBC Radio 3

'Works of unearthly beauty and imagination... electric, chilling harmonies'' - Los Angeles Times

Rating Review
Customer Rating Can't wait to sing these lovely pieces. Choir needs to be good though as intonation is everything in the music game! Try other composers like Cecilia McDowall if you like Whitacre.

Customer Rating An excellent selection of atmospheric music for voices. Good singers are required to keep the close harmonies. The Seal Lullaby is 4 part and beautiful with a reflective piano part.

Customer Rating Excellent collection of various choral items. Be warned that some require split parts/double choir.
