Eric Whitacre download bonanza

My recent article on Eric Whitacre generated a huge amount of interest. Now comes the opportunity to hear an interview with Whitacre (left) telling how he started in choral composing, plus performances of three of his works. (The title of the feature does seem a touch ambiguous though - Stumbling into Choral Music). The generous 16 minute programme comes from NPR and includes complete performances of “This Marriage” and “Go Lovely Rose” sung by Polyphony, under the direction of Stephen Layton, and “A Boy and a Girl” from a concert performance by the Santa Fe Desert Chorale, directed by Linda Mack. Follow this link for the download. Also worth a visit for Eric Whitacre fans is his MySpace site where you can hear more of the Hyperion Cloudburst CD featured in my original article.
