Eric Whitacre Collection Tuesday, December 07, 2010
The Eric Whitacre Collection contains seven pieces for a cappella mixed choir by Eric Whitacre in the first available printed music compilation of its kind for the composer. The book includes pieces of varying difficulty, wide-ranging in theme, from the iconic “Sleep” and “Water Night” to the quietly angelic “Lux Aurumque (Light and Gold)” and the recent “Nox Aurumque (Night and Gold).” “A Boy and a Girl” and “This Marriage” are both wonderfully tender pieces and the inclusion of the early “Go, Lovely Rose” marks the beginning of a journey through Whitacre’s choral output from this first success to the present day. Also included are notes from the composer on each piece, offering insight into the compositional process and inspiration for each work.
