When I first heard this music sampled for me I was amazed to discover that it was contemporary as its form and mode is of the classic tradition of choral music.

On first hearing the purity of the sound is such that it may well take your ears a little while, after recovering from being caressed in a whole new way, to register that the sounds are actual human voices; we have become so used to electronically produced sounds in recent years.

Whitacre's texts are many and various and include the poems of e.e.cummings and Octavio Paz set for, mostly, unaccompanied voices that shift and change and drift and rise and fall until a dreamlike almost hypnotic state is induced in the listener.

This is the music of dreams;the music of calm and contentment. It will remain with you long after the last note has dwindled away into a long echoing space

Just the most beautiful choral music for the 21st century. Luscious harmonies moving subtley through astonishing crunchies to sheer chords of clear tones.
The choir itself sings exquisitely and achieves the perfect balance between superb technique and emotional depth.

I have another recording by this excellent choir called The Mystery of Christmas and so when I saw they'd recorded a selcetion of Eric Whitacre's beautiful pieces I had to have it and it's more than lived up to my expectations. It is a stunning piece of work.

I had never heard of this gentleman until Lux aurumque was played with great sensitivity by a Royal Marines Band at an open-air concert recently. This CD should be on prescription- it is that good at relaxing the mind!

I heard one piece on the radio and liked it enormously and I like choral music anyway so, took a punt and have enjoyed all the works very much.

What seemed like a lovely choice of CD turned out to be a disaster!! Having listened to a sample of every track on the website, I eagerly ordered three copies, for myself and two family members. When I received them, the CD cover was the same but the tracks on the cd's were all instrumentals, and none of them were remotely like the choral variety I was expecting. Very confusing! The CD's themselves were all printed correctly too which added to the confusion. On the returns form there was no accurate 'reason' for me to select to explain why I was returning them, so I don't as yet know whether I qualify for a refund, despite the music being completely wrong. Never had this problem with Amazon before.Whitacre: Choral Music (Her Sacred Spirit Soars/ A Boy And A Girl/ Water Night)

Very disappointed as the music on the CD was not what we bought - the Whitacre: Choral Music (Her Sacred Spirit Soars/ A Boy And A Girl/ Water Night). This music was entirely instrumental.
This was a Christmas gift and I am unable to re-purchase without guarantee of the same thing happening.
