Stanhope: Lux Aeterna

Sydney Chamber Choir, Paul Stanhope

‘Lux Aeterna' - ‘eternal light' - the struggle of light and darkness: an ancient concept, inspiring music-making for centuries.

The new album from Australian composer Paul Stanhope brings this search for light into the present day, setting texts from across cultures and ages: Arabic poetry, Old Testament verses, liturgical chants, and present-day words from Australia and South America. By turns elegiac and urgent, serene and rapturous, Lux Aeterna lives out themes of optimism, humanity and empathy.

Stanhope’s music is recorded here with the choir he has collaborated with over the past decade, Sydney Chamber Choir, resulting in a uniquely satisfying depth of understanding of Stanhope’s musical language and the text which he sets.
