With thanks to our friend Pam for emailing me a link to Lux Aurumque some weeks ago. 

Eric Whitacre's website is a feast of glorious, life- and community-affirming music - which is, of course, all the things a choir is. There is nothing we cannot do when we link up. . . especially during darkest hours. 


  1. Gorgeous and astounding, Claire, truly a glorious piece of art and music fused, and individual voices from all over the world connecting through time, in spite of space. The words are all wrong. It is beautiful. xo

  2. Fun how he was able to sequence each into a match.

  3. Claire, this is incredible and moving on so many levels.
    Thank you for sharing.

  4. i've been playing this in the background as i work.....
    thanx, claire--you are the b.e.s.t. @ c-o-n-n-e-c-t-i-n-g


    all in our little tents, under the stars....

  5. Dear Melissa, Steve, Antares Cryptos, Mary and Susan -
    I do like the thought of us being a choir of sorts, too.

    ("• a group of instruments of one family playing together")

    in our tents

    under the stars.

    When I was a child, struck by the enormity of the world and all that is in it, I found the thought that we're all under the same sky, very comforting. And we are - a miracle, really.

    Love to you all,
