A Sound of Angels

Somehow we all think we know what angels sound like, even though nearly all of us have never seen or heard any. Words like "pure" and "high" come to mind, although when you read about the angels who sang to the shepherds they seem to have been belting it out.

This term's concert is entitled "A Sound of Angels" and includes some beautiful music.

One piece is "Lux Aurumque" by Eric Whitacre, a contemporary composer. The words are simple:

Warm and heavy as pure gold
And the angels sing softly
To the new-born baby

It is truly angelic, using delicate clashing harmonies threading  around each to the calm ending. Click on this link to hear it:


In the choir we are doing our mortal best to sound as angelic as possible.

Don't miss it!
