Lux Aeterna

This stunning a cappella work is carefully crafted to bring it well within reach for many choirs. A wonderfully lush and sonorous tonal palette is sprinkled with moments of prepared dissonance and close harmonies. The middle section quotes the “Requiem” chant tune. A perfect contrasting pairing with Trotta’s rhythmic and popular “Dies Irae.” Excerpted from Requiem,  the major work for choir and orchestra, currently in progress.

Lux æterna luceat eis, Domine:
Cum Sanctis tuis in æternum: quia pius es.

Requiem æternam dona eis,
Domine: et lux perpetua luceat eis.
Cum Sanctis tuis in æternum: quia pius es.

May light eternal shine upon them, O Lord, with
Thy Saints for evermore: for Thou art gracious.

Eternal rest give to them,
O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them:
With Thy Saints for evermore, for Thou art gracious.
