Morten Lauriden: O Magnum Mysterium
The composer himself about his work
Morten Lauridsen, Honorary Artistic President of INTERKULTUR is among the international jury at the Sing’n’Joy Princeton – The American International Choral Festival to take place from February 16 – 20, 2017 in cooperation with the world renowned Westminster Choir College.
For the first time, he will act as adjudicator at an INTERKULTUR event and evaluate the choirs’ performances in the competition. His famous composition “O Magnum Mysterium” is one of the compulsory pieces the participants can choose for the category A – Difficulty Level I. As a special treat he will make a precious gift to the winning choir – the first page of the manuscript of “O Magnum Mysterium” – a truly memorable bonus from a truly great composer of our times.
See in this video by USC Thornton School of Music what the composer and adjudicator Lauridsen himself tells about this famous and frequently performed work:
