        Nox Aurumque is a challenging but eminently 'do-able' piece for a good chamber choir or small (one-to-a-part) group. It follows the successful recipe of Lux Aurumque, without reproducing the latter's consistent magical beauty. Nevertheless, this is further proof of Whitacre's extraordinary talent for choral writing and it contains exquisite moments of inspired layered harmonies.
