My Spirit Soars 3/4
The Seattle Choral Company proudly presents
music by three of America's most prominent
living choral composers.
A native of Washington State, Morten Lauridsen
is now considered one of America's finest and
most beloved composers whose music is heart-felt
and radiant. Critics were jubilant after our
May 2000 performance of his "Lux Aeterna,"
and we are excited to revisit this 1997
masterpiece for our anniversary season.
"Lauridsen delivers bouts of light and shade
that dapple the senses with a grace that the
biblical 'multitude of the heavenly host' might
envy." (CNN.com/February 8, 2006)
"Her Sacred Spirit Soars"
"Leonardo Dreams of His Flying Machine"
At age 36, Eric Whitacre is one of the bright
stars in contemporary concert music The Los
Angeles Times praised his compositions as "works
of unearthly beauty and imagination, (with)
electric, chilling harmonies," while the
Philadelphia Inquirer has called him "the
hottest thing in choral music."
"Dos Suenos" (Two Dreams)
A newly commissioned work based on mystical poems by Antonio Machado and Federico Garcia Lorca. Sung in Spanish.
The Seattle Weekly stated, "No Seattle
composer has a more assured and polished craft
than Bern Herbolsheimer. His choral writing - and
there's a lot of it - is luminous and subtle."

by this treasured Northwest composer will be
