WQXR: Easter Picks

Posted on:  April 18th, 2017

Ahead of Easter, WQXR has interviewed several choral figures to find out their Top Picks for Easter. Visit WQXR to read contributions from Chanticleer, Mark Shapiro, The King’s Singers, Eric and more.

“As an avid admirer of Bach, Eric Whitacre turns to the Easter Oratorio to honor the holiday. Although the piece does not include any Biblical text, the sequence of movements loosely narrates the Resurrection story. The original version from 1725 had very little choral music, but Bach’s revised version expanded the role of the chorus. The triumphal trumpets in the opening Sinfonia and the jubilant first chorus of the oratorio perfectly set the scene for Easter day.”

“Myriad Choral Colors Paint Duke Chapel’s Acoustic Canvas with Whitacre Singers”

Posted on:  February 28th, 2017

Many thanks to Geoffrey Simon and CVNC for a beautifully-written review of the first concert of the current Eric Whitacre Singers US tour.

“Whitacre is a sound-painter on the canvas of the human spirit. While many of his works remind us of the mediaeval antiphon, Media vita in morte sumus (“In the midst of life, we are in death”), his singers remind us also that life triumphs, a message to be cherished in the midst of a troubled world.”
