"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 on Hyperion records (CDA67449) www.hyperion-records.co.uk/"
