LAURIDSEN THE MYSTIC – Tudor Choristers

15 September 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

| Adult and Senior $35   Concession $30 Children and School Students -  free

The Tudor Choristers, directed by Dr Kathleen McGuire, will present a program of Morten Lauridsen‘s exciting sacred music. Imbued with Greek modes and Gregorian plainchant, in contemporary yet highly accessible settings, Morten Lauridsen’s breathtaking music appeals to all lovers of choral music. His music left audience members in awe when Tudor Choristers performed some of his works in the past two years. As such, by popular demand, Tudor Choristers presents an entire program of sacred works composed by the award-winning Lauridsen. Musicologist Nick Strimple said Lauridsen is “the only American composer in history who can be called a mystic, (whose) probing, serene work contains an elusive and indefinable ingredient which leaves the impression that all the questions have been answered. From 1993 Lauridsen’s music rapidly increased in international popularity, and by century’s end he had eclipsed Randall Thompson as the most frequently performed American choral composer.” The program will include O Magnum Mysterium, Lux Aeterna and Ave Maria.
