Luminosity: the measure of light
What is the sound that light makes? Find out on June 6 and 7 when the Seattle Choral Company presents its season finale, Luminosity: the measure of light.

The central work on the program will be Morten Lauridsen's cherished contemporary masterpiece, Lux Aeterna (Eternal Light), an intimate work of quiet serenity centered around a universal symbol of hope, reassurance, goodness and illumination at all levels. It is rapturously beautiful, in the composer's distinctly tonal style with honest and heartfelt choral writing.

The Seattle Choral Company presented the first Seattle performance of Lauridsen's Lux Aeterna in May of 2000, with the composer present. About the performance, Seattle Times music critic Melinda Bargreen wrote,

"The audience was already on its feet, with a standing ovation for the Seattle Choral Company's first Seattle performance of Morten Lauridsen's Lux Aeterna.

But when Lauridsen himself stepped onto the stage to acknowledge the applause, a football-stadium roar arose in the sedate confines of the . . . church. You don't hear that kind of roar very often in performances of new music; it's a response that indicates the audience has been moved, impressed and delighted by what it just heard."

Also on the program will be these amazing works written to be sung in a large cathedral space:

Missa Choralis (Choral Mass) by Franz Liszt
Three Motets, Op. 38 by Charles Villiers Stanford
Bring us, O Lord by William Harris
Loving Shepherd of Thy Sheep by John Rutter

Hear the Seattle Choral Company weave their voices into a gorgeous tapestry of sound at Saint Mark's Cathedral! These are going to be wondrous performances of great cathedral choral works and we would be honored to have you bring your listening presence on either evening.
