Info for Lux
Lux – the Latin for “light” – brings radiance, hope and comfort; from the pale glow of the moon or starlight to the blaze of summer sun, it nurtures both the body and the spirit. There is something inherently comforting about the sound of unaccompanied voices in harmony and as this luminous selection of pieces demonstrates, composers across the ages have felt the same way.
A luminous selection of pieces spanning over 400 years: from Thomas Tallis and Gregorio Allegri to Massive Attack (Teardrop) and Ben Folds Five (The Luckiest - which appeared on the soundtrack for Richard Curtis film About Time).
Includes popular classics such as Miserere (Allegri) and Nimrod (Elgar) as well as Ubi Caritas by Paul Mealor, a piece commissioned by Prince William and Catherine Middleton and premiered at their wedding in 2011.
Features works by two of the most talked about composers of our time: Ola Gjeilo (Norway) and Will Todd (UK). In addition to the soothing sound of unaccompanied voices blended in harmony, several tracks feature otherworldly additions of saxophone, cello, harp and water glasses.
