Lux Nova sees Eric Whitacre's best-selling 'Lux Aurumque' re-imagined with a middle section of new material from his musical 'Paradise Lost'. Lux Nova works best with a pure, balanced, shimmering tone with strict attention to the dynamic colors and a slow, luscious pacing.
This piece for unaccompanied SATB Choir incorporates poetry by Edward Esch, translated into Latin by celebrated American lyricist Charles Anthony Silvestri.
Eric Whitacre's Lux Nova was featured in the 2014 iTunes festival. Duration: approx. 4:20.
