The results are in: Attending a concert reduces glucocorticoids, progesterone and the cortisol/DHEA ratio

Posted on:  February 23rd, 2016

The results of the study into the physiological impact of attending a concert, researched last year at the Eric Whitacre Singers concerts in London and Cheltenham, have been released.

The results proved that there were significant changes in cortisol, cortisone, progesterone, cortisol/DHEA ratio and cortisol/cortisone ratio. This is the first evidence that attending a cultural event can have an impact on endocrine activity and down-regulate stress.

The full results can be found within the Public Health Journal.

Jeff Beal: The Salvage Men (Eric Whitacre Singers & Eric Whitacre) Out Today

Posted on:  January 22nd, 2016

The Salvage Men is the first-ever choral piece from acclaimed American composer Jeff Beal written for the Eric Whitacre Singers and the Los Angeles Master Chorale. Performed live by the Eric Whitacre Singers and conducted by Eric in the incredible acoustic of London’s Union Chapel, this world premiere performance is not one to be missed. Widely-known for his work in film and television, Jeff Beal recently won an Emmy for his score of the Netflix phenomenon House of Cards.

Whilst working on the Al Pacino documentary ‘Wild Salome’, Jeff Beal was inspired by the words of Oscar Wilde’s ‘De Profundus’ portraying the authors arrest and last days in Paris. At the very same time Jeff found himself in the midst of an unexpected health crisis, which eventually lead to a diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis. Beal writes, “Wilde’s De Profundus came at the beginning of a journey in learning how to live gracefully with an uninvited guest”. The Salvage Men takes text from De Profundus and the words of American poet Kay Ryan and translates this period of Jeff’s life into music for voices.

Eric Whitacre Singers Live at Union Chapel – OUT NOW

Posted on:  July 11th, 2015

Recorded live in 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.

1. Ubi Caritas – Maurice Duruflé

2. I Hide Myself (Three Flower Songs) – Eric Whitacre

3. With a Lily in Your Hand (Three Flower Songs) – Eric Whitacre

4. Go Lovely Rose (Three Flower Songs) – Eric Whitacre

5. The Lamb – John Tavener

6. Poor in Spirit (feat. Jeff Beal) – Jeff Beal
