Please join us in a musical journey of sacred light and The Eternal. The St. Barnabas Choir will perform Morten Lauridsen's "Lux Aeterna" with Carole Tillotson on organ.
Lauridsen composed the Lux Aeterna in response to his mother's final illness, and found great personal comfort and solace in setting to music five different timeless and wondrous sacred Latin texts about Light, a universal symbol of illumination at all levels - spiritual, artistic and intellectual.
"It is my hope that this quiet meditation on Light will enrich and enlighten the lives of both performers and listeners in some way." (Lauridsen, 2008)
