Lux Nova, a reimagining of Lux Aurumque, will premiere next week at iTunes Festival on September 17 with the Eric Whitacre Singers. The sheet music will be made available to purchase to coincide with the premiere through the Walton GIA website.
Eric writes, “one of the pieces that we will perform at the iTunes Festival next week will be “Lux Nova”, my reimagined version of Lux Aurumque. Basically it is Lux Aurumque with the middle section replaced by the Bliss theme from my musical Paradise Lost. (Exactly like my wind symphony transcription of Lux Aurumque). Can’t wait for you all to hear it.”
