Memorial Day 2018, Lux Aeterna by Eriks Esenvalds

This YouTube seemed just right for Memorial Day here in the USA. Okay, it’s in Latin, composed by a contemporary Latvian composer, and sung by a Slovenian girls’ choir. But there is still that longing for eternal light and the wish to remember those who have gone before us.
Esenvalds was born in Latvia in 1977. You can find out more about his awards, commissions, etc. at his website. And YouTube will give you a wealth of his music. Of course, I selected this one not only because of the holiday but because this is the treble voice arrangement. And you know about me and trebles, don’t you?
