Morten Lauridsen’s setting of Lux aeterna - a five-movement, non-liturgical requiem for choir and chamber orchestra/organ - is a rich and intensely moving work. Choral textures are fully explored, from the sonorous, slow unfolding of the ‘Introitus’ and the intricate counterpoint and paired voices of In te, Domine, speravi, to the cappella motet O nata lux and spirited canticle Veni, Sancte Spiritus. The last movement - a sublime Agnus Dei preceding the final Lux aeterna - closes with a joyous Alleluia to provide an uplifting conclusion to this most powerful work.

This beautiful choral arrangement, along with other Lauridsen favourites, has recently been released by Hyperion Records.
