Reviews

At times on this second release for Decca, Whitacre 'does Whitacre' very well indeed. The positives are to be found in works which build upon the firm foundations laid down in his trademark choral style, as heard in the rich yet resourceful 'Alleluia' setting with opens 'Water Night'. Inspired by his short residency at Cambridge University last year, plainchant-style patterns weave in and around a sustained central note before broadening out on to a more expansive and expressive choral canvas. Likewise 'Oculi omnium', whose consonant-sounding clusters create wonderfully rippling effects.
