Features
Lux Aeterna by : Morten Lauridsen


Each of the five connected movements in this choral cycle contains references to 'Light;' assembled from various sacred Latin texts. I composed Lux Aeterna in response to my mother's final illness and found great personal comfort and solace in setting to music these timeless and wondrous words about Light; a universal symbol of illumination at all levels - spiritual; artistic and intellectual.

The work opens and closes with the beginning and ending of the Requiem Mass; with the central three movements drawn respectively from the Te Deum; O Nata Lux and Veni; Sancte Spiritus. The opening Introitus introduces several themes that recur later in the work and includes an extended canon on “et lux perpetua.” In Te; Domine; Speravi contains; among other musical elements; the cantus firmus “Herzliebster Jesu” (from the Nuremburg Songbook; 1677) and a lengthy inverted canon on “fiat misericordia.” O Nata Lux and Veni; Sancte Spiritus are paired songs; the former an a cappella motet at the center of the work and the latter a spirited; jubilant canticle. A quiet setting of the Agnus Dei precedes the final Lux Aeterna; which reprises the opening section of the Introitus and concludes with a joyful celebratory Alleluia.

--Morten Lauridsen
