Although the program begins with ancient chant, Lux's love of contemporary choral music still shines through: The final chant programmed in the series is a newly-commissioned chant melody from Maryland-based composer Christen Holmes, and the culminating event of the series is the virtual world-premiere of the winning piece from their Composition Contest, which closes on December 12. Of the program, director Robby Napoli said, "I'm very excited about the novelty of the program, and I think it will be a welcome change from the virtual performances we've recently been inundated with. Most of all though, I'm excited that we've been able to tailor this season so perfectly to our mission, and I absolutely cannot wait to bring two brand new pieces to life."
The first release of the program, which is completely free to all, will be available on Lux's website beginning in early December. To learn more about Lux or buy their newest Christmas CD, visit their website at www.ChoirLux.com.
