  • July 26, 2008 Challenging but beautiful

    This piece is a beautiful piece, but the close harmonies and four-part divisis in each part makes this piece difficult. The singers must be split up in a way that all the parts can be equally heard,and requires a lot of attention. When well put together, the effect...

    is really dramatic. The chorus I was in peformed this piece in a darkened auditorium, forcing the audience to focus on the voices, which made the piece more powerful.

  • January 10, 2008 Beautiful Beyond Belief

    Water Night is one of my favorite pieces of all time, as well as my favorite by Eric Whitacre. He captures the essense and sound of moonlight shimmering through water. It's revolutionary, breath-taking, and simply gorgeous! It is a great challenge for highly skilled choirs. Choral directors must...

    have patience and choral members must have absolute devotion in order to recreate the beauty that Whitacre intended. Water Night is utterly sensational and - in a word - eternal!

    Water Night is slow, dramatic, and thought-provoking. Really gorgeous. The lyrics are unusual after being translated from the original poem, but still beautiful. A fabulous piece.

    You and your singers will fall in love with this piece. Full of chromaticism and close chords, it is difficult, but full of emotion.
