From “As I Walk the Silent Earth” by Thomas LaVoy
A stunning new recording from James Jordan and the Westminster Williamson voices.
Music opens us to a more radiant and brilliant life through sounds and words. There is music that, by its very nature, “tears a hole in the sky”—the “sky” of our spirits and souls. Certain music, certain composers, and certain performances have a way of “tearing a hole” into us perhaps even bringing new meaning to what we do and how we live.
The music of Hole in the Sky has a common thread in that all the pieces, in some way, provide an illuminative hole, through both sound and text, into a deeper understanding of life and living. It explores the many worlds of choral sound. From Ola Gjeilo’s “The Spheres,” to Mendelssohn’s stunning work for women’s choir, “Veni, Domine,” to “She Weeps Over Rahoon” by Eric Whitacre, to the joyful “Jubilate Deo” of Benjamin Britten, this music will touch the depths of your soul. Be bold, take a breath, and dare to fall through.
