The Sacred Veil
The Sacred Veil is a 12-movement work and the most recent collaboration between Eric Whitacre and poet/lyricist Charles Anthony Silvestri telling a story of life; love and loss. Silvestri's wife; Julie; died of ovarian cancer at age 36 in 2005; leaving two young children. Including texts from Silvestri; Whitacre and Julie herself; the intimate; compelling score tells a story of courtship; love; loss and the search for solace. Although inspired by this extraordinary and moving friendship; the piece does not mention Julie by name and shares a very human journey–one that so many of us can relate to.
The Sacred Veil has been recorded with the Los Angeles Master Chorale; Jeffrey Zeigler (cello); Lisa Thomas (piano) and Eric Whitacre (conductor).
