This breathtakingly beautiful ACDA award-winning composition, "Lux Aeterna," offers rich harmonies in an approachable setting. Works well in both concert and memorial settings. This expressive a cappella original by Audrey Snyder, "O Lux," is perfect for contest and festival use. Excellent voice-leading makes this sound more difficult than it really is. An optional soprano solo completes this spellbinding work. Matthew Harrisbrings us this simple and eloquent new setting of the well-known prayer, "Ave Maria." Based on Elgar's own piano transcription of his Enigma Variations, the rich harmonies and depth of expression of this setting of "Agnus Dei" with sacred text may be performed by a variety of choirs. With Sanctus already available in print, the "Kyrie" is the second installment in a mass in progress by this Swedish composer, whose Lo, How a Rose E'er Blooming has been frequently performed and recorded both in Sweden and abroad, including the United States. A fine selection for festival or competition use. Winner of the ACDA sponsored "Raymond Brock Memorial" competition, "Kyrie," was premiered at the 2005 ACDA convention and is a part of the Paul A. Smith Festival Series. Kentaro Sato has taken a universal text and created colors of sound that suspend and resolve in various shades and hues.
