Light & Gold

· by Sarah-Ann Larouche

Known by millions of Internet users thanks to his “Lux Aurumque (Light and Gold)”, performed by a virtual choir of thousands of singers, Eric Whitacre has quickly positioned himself at the forefront of the choral field. Following that piece, the album includes a series of original works directed by Whitacre, each one reflecting his distinctive aesthetic: the dissonances create a vibration and a tension, the whole balanced by the simplicity of the harmony, as well as by the moments of evocative suspension and silence. Overall, Light & Gold reveals itself to be an absolutely incomparable choral-music experience.
