Eric Whitacre's Virtual Choir - 'Lux Aurumque'

I found this video on Twitter.

I found the lyrics here.

Blessings Cathy... I still find this so awesome and moving!

It was helpful to add the lyric link because until today I did not realize that they were more than sounds blended... that they were actually words. I guess I did not focus with being so amazed!

Absolutely wonderful what virtual can add to a composition and a piece joined as one! WOW! Powerful!
Beautiful voices that were compiled for this project from the beautiful soprano, to each part...down to bass, could not pick out my alto part (lol). And to think I use to be soprano and keep dropping...way out of range now.

"Some sing low, some sing higher"

Hugs and thank for sharing!!!

The first time I saw this done was after the earthquake in Haiti. A bunch of people made a video of people singing and they all were at home. It was very good.

Thanks for posting this.
