Eric Whitacre, VOCES8

Home (CD)

Grammy-winning composer Eric Whitacre is releasing a brand new album with world-renowned VOCES8 – his ‘dream vocal group’ – for the first time. The two powerhouses in the choral world had never worked together until The Sacred Veil in 2019. With Eric conducting throughout, it includes a world premiere recording of his new piece, "All Seems Beautiful to Me," as well as a new recording of one of his most popular pieces – "The Seal Lullaby." The album also features the 12-movement cantata, "The Sacred Veil," with text by Eric’s long-time friend and collaborator, Charles Anthony (Tony) Silvestri. It tells the story of the death of Tony’s young wife from ovarian cancer.
