Description

Latvian composer Ēriks Ešenvalds is one of today’s most popular names in choral music. His simple setting of Lux Aeterna (“Light Eternal”) employs beautiful chant-like melodies that complement the ancient text and crystalline transparent textures that seem to imply light streaming through a stained-glass window. Bellevue Chamber Chorus offers this piece in memory of all those that have passed during COVID-19 in hopes that we all find a path toward light and peace.
