The amazing recording is the perfect melding of composer and performers. Lauridsen wrote the piece for Salamunovich and the Master Chorale who got a Grammy nomination for the effort. It's been recorded by others but this is and always will be the definitive version.
We had a chance to be the second choir to do his "O Magnum Mysterium", and even performed it for some of his family. To say there wasn't a dry eye in the house was an understatement. This cd really hightlights the romanticism and and the power his music tries to convey. It really is a must.
This album is has probably the prettiest songs I've ever heard. Their harmonizing sounds like voices of angels. I highly recommend Lux Aeterna: O Nata Lux....but then again...they are all absolutley gorgeous. This album is for anyone who needs meditating music or just loves classical music. A MUST BUY!
