Podcast: The Elora Festival Singers sing Whitacre

Eric Whitacre is now the unquestioned superstar of American choral composers. Whether he is setting the poetry of Octavio Paz, e.e. cummings, Rumi or the Bible, his marriage of poetry with beauty of sound creates a unique and enchanting sonic world. This sound world is beautifully captured on this CD by the Elora Festival Singers, pianist Leslie De’Ath, percussionist Carol Bauman, and conductor Noel Edison. In this podcast, Eric Whitacre talks about choosing poetry for music, his love of e.e. cummings, his Youtube choir, and his brand new music theatre piece “Paradise Lost”.
