European choir culture meets American choral sounds
Morten Lauridsen releases new CD with Chamber Choir of Europe
The awe-inspiring mountainous landscape in Kufstein, Austria, was the birthplace of Morten Lauridsen’s new CD "Light Eternal – The Choral Music of Morten Lauridsen", which unites existing compositions and world premieres of the famous American composer and Honorary Artistic President of INTERKULTUR.
The Chamber Choir of Europe, renowned for its passionate performances, recorded the works under the direction of Artistic Director Nicol Matt. The official CD release by the Deutsche Grammophon will be on October 26, 2018.
Der Chamber Choir of Europe embodies the European spirit and stands for emphatic and passionate choral concerts. Nature, light and poetry are only three of many commonalities, which shape this special musical get-together under the direction of Nicol Matt.
The CD is also part of a concert and workshop series together with Morten Lauridsen and the Chamber Choir of Europe, which currently takes place in Germany. Choral music lovers have the chance to attend workshops and sing in concerts performing some of Lauridsen’s most famous pieces like as ‘O Magnum Mysterium’, ‘Sure on this Shinning Night’ and ‘Dirait-on’ and others.
