In their new album "Rosa Mystica: Choral Music for the Soul," the Maria Magdalena Chamber Choir and director Mats Nilsson perform a variety of choral favorites by Eric Whitacre, Ola Gjeilo, and others.
Eric Whitacre is the most popular choral composer today, and his works are beloved by choirs throughout the world. In this one-hour programs, he introduces the music with co-host Brian Newhouse and describes the often-colorful backstory of how each piece came to be.
Eric Whitacre is bringing his award-winning U.K. ensemble, the Eric Whitacre Singers, to the U.S. for only the second time ever ... and to the Twin Cities for the first time ever. They're touring with a program called Music for Sacred Spaces. Listen to the live broadcast of the Eric Whitacre Singers in concert at the Cathedral of St. Paul on Thursday, March 9, starting at 7:30 p.m.
