Haunting Lyrical Masterpiece,
This review is from: Cloudburst and other choral works (Audio CD)
If you wish to understand how music can bring inner peace and healing and touch the deepest emotions, listen to this quite remarkable album. It evokes joy, anguish and moments of profound stillness and the music echoes every mood and nuance of the wonderful poems. I cannot praise Polyphony highly enough - their recent album of Morten Lauridsen's equally ravishing choral work (Lux Aeterna)- was achingly beautiful, but this has touched a further dimension of artistic expression. Outstanding tracks for me are "I thank thee God", "Sleep" and "A Boy and a Girl". Eric Whitacre wherever you are - bless you.
