As I Surrender Unto Sleep
Sunday, 29 May 2005 11:10 PM MDT
Gorgeous music! I've raved about Eric Whitacre's music before. Here's an excerpt of Sleep which is currently my favorite Whitacre composition, available directly from Eric Whitacre's web site. I think it's probably the BYU Singers rendition.
Or an excerpt from the wind instrumental rendition (I'm not sure who the performers are):
While perusing some other blogs tonight, my iPod Shuffle decided to shuffle on over to Sleep, and the expressive, beautiful music instantly grabbed my attention so powerfully that I had to say something about it.
Way to go, Mr. Whitacre!
I suppose I must also mention another track I listened to, composed by another of my favorite composers, John Rutter. It's the first movement of Magnificat, from track 19 on my The Cambridge Singers Collection CD. Celestial music!
Eeek, I guess I rant about good music often enough that I ought to create a separate category for it. *laugh*
