2018-2019 Season
Medieval to Modern: five centuries of choral music
 
Next concert:
John Rutter’s REQUIEM
& Morten Lauridsen’s LUX AETERNA
Saturday November 17, 2018
7.30 pm First Metropolitan United Church
  
Contemporary English composer John Rutter is known for his beautiful melodies, and this work, completed in 1985, is hailed for the purity and sensitivity of its vocal lines, especially in the Pie Jesu motet movement. His Requiem, which combines movements of the Latin requiem mass with English psalms, continues to be popular with choirs and audiences around the world.

American composer Morten Lauridsen describes his setting of sacred Latin texts in Lux Aeterna as a meditation on Light, “a universal symbol of illumination at all levels – spiritual, artistic and intellectual.” For musical inspiration, he draws on the harmonies and counterpoint of sacred music of the late Renaissance.
