Serious modern choral and symphonic magic

Wow. I heard Eric Whitacre interviewed on the radio about his virtual choir project. That is cool. So I looked up his latest CD and gave it a listen. Double wow. The symphonic "Equus" and "The River Cam" are mesmerizing, and the choral works are ethereal. I love his texts--from Goodnight, Moon (yes, that Goodnight, Moon) to poets Charles Anthony Silvestri and Octavio Paz to the King James Bible. His liner notes also make the music accessible. You'll also like his grammy winning Light and Gold.
