I’ve got a backlog of several posts I want to write, but I did want to post something fairly quick before much more time elapsed.
This video is a lovely recording of Eric Whitacre’s stunning “Alleluia,” which is a choral adaptation of his instrumental “October,” which I also love. I heard this “Alleluia” for the first time live at a concert of Eric Whitacre conducting his singers as part of his “Inspirations” tour. It was a few weeks ahead of Easter, but now in the Easter season there’s little that’s more appropriate than nine minutes of alleluias.
For anyone studying for finals right now or writing papers, it’s a wonderful accompaniment.
