Voicing Mixed Voices
Though written in an advanced idiom, this work was commissioned and first performed by Graeme Morton’s St Peters Chorale, a high school choir. The composer writes “musically, this work has been much influenced by Renaissance choral music…my aim above all things was to draw upon a tradition of writing that is solemn, richly spiritual but ultimately life-affirming”.
The sound file was recorded by the Sydney Chamber Choir, conducted by the composer, and from a CD released through ABC Classics. Lux Aeterna is recorded on the Sydney Chamber Choir CD Songs for the Shadowland.
