Eric Whitacre Singers Live at Union Chapel
Recorded live at Union Chapel, London, this EP features the very first choral piece written by Eric. Go Lovely Rose was written as a gift for David Weiller, Director of Choral Studies at the University of Las Vegas, in Eric’s final year there as a student, and served as the first in a series of events that led him to the Juilliard School of Music (studying under John Corigliano) and to a life in music.
This recording is the first to be published conducted by the composer, and sits alongside a choral jewel of recent years by Sir John Tavener – The Lamb – and Maurice Duruflé’s beautiful Ubi Caritas. The soaring sounds of Poor in Spirit, written by American composer Jeff Beal and featuring Mr. Beal on flugel horn, close the EP.
Release date: 10 July 2015
