Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Eternal Reflections is a collaboration between Musica Sacra, one of America's greatest professional choirs, Music Director Kent Tritle, and award-winning composer Robert Paterson. This is the first album dedicated entirely to Paterson's choral music, and all works on the album are world-premiere recordings. This beautiful album was recorded at the world-famous Academy of Arts and Letters in New York City, and produced by multi-Grammy winning producer Adam Abeshouse.


The works on the album include everything from secular to sacred works, from serious to lighthearted and even humorous. Lux Aeterna, written specifically for Musica Sacra and Kent Tritle, is a setting of excerpts of text from the Requiem Mass. Eternal Reflections was originally commissioned by the Volti Choir of San Francisco and the winning work of the Cincinnati Camerata Composition Competition, and includes settings of texts by Czeslaw Milosz, Mary E. Frye and Paul Lawrence Dunbar. The Essence of Gravity, also commissioned by Volti, is a set of four movements using onomotopeia words as texts. The movements are inspired by aspects of gravity,both physical and emotional, on subjects as diverse as war, love, the ocean and outer space.


A Dream within a Dream was commissioned by the Chamber Choir of Europe and is a setting of the text of the same name by Edgar Alan Poe. Life is But A Dream: also commissioned by CCE, is based on Row, Row, Row Your Boat, and incorporates multiple translations of this famous round in different languages. Suite from A New Eaarth (for orchestra, chorus and narrator) was written for the VYOA Choir during a Music Alive! New Music USA residency. This piece touches on environmental issues and global warming; text by Wendell Berry, James Joyce, Percy Bysshe Shelly and William Wordsworth. Did You Hear? addresses the life of teens and the consequences of rumors and gossip, with an original text by David Cote. Snow Day was commissioned by the Pelham Memorial High School Choir, and expresses the joy of having a day off from school; text by David Cote.

Review

"I find this generally true of all Paterson's art that I have heard thus far; he doesn't give you the choice to ignore him. What he says is done with an uncanny knack for immediate communicability, and his expressive artistry in portraying his interpretation of the texts at hand is vivid and memorable... Musica Sacra is a longtime favorite of mine, now around since about 1964, and they are in fine form here. Definitely worth getting to know this composer, with a package given in radiant sound replete with first class production values."
--Steven Ritter, Audiophile Audition, April 17, 2015

"Overall, Eternal Reflections conveys the virtuosity of Robert Paterson and why he was awarded The Composer of the Year in 2012 from the Classical Recording Foundation. Musica Sacra, under the brilliant direction of Kent Tritle, sing these compositions with self-confidence and professionalism. Recommended." --Paula Edelstein, axs.com, March 15, 2015

"As shaped by Music Director Kent Tritle, the myriad hues, lyricism and nobility in Paterson's music emerge in all their splendour. The choristers of Musica Sacra lift their lines from the page, bringing passionate and lucid life to the varied challenges." --Donald Rosenberg, Gramophone, July 2015
