Eric Whitacre: Water Music

If you haven’t heard of Eric Whitacre yet, that’s all going to change soon. Taking over the world one YouTube clip at a time, this new recording was produced using the internet through 73 different countries. My first thought at this was, ‘oh dear’. From the first glorious notes though you can see that they’ve used technology at the very height of sophistication. The works are all for solo choir, aside from the title track and ‘River Cam’ which includes solo cello. This is in the grand traditions of Gregorian Chant, John Rutter and every choral master you’ve ever heard. What a stunning album, do not miss it.
