o nata lux – BY Vince peterson
21st Century, Contemporary Classical, Christian, General Worship
O Nata Lux is a setting of the liturgical text from the Morning Office Lauds for the Feast of the Transfiguration in the Christian church. It was originally composed for and premiered by the Choir of St. Paul's Carroll Street in Brooklyn, NY and was dedicated to its then Rector, The Revered Peter Cullen. The premiere was conducted by the composer in Sunday Mass on the Feast of the Transfiguration. This harmonically surprising setting is suitable for liturgical or concert use and is short and simple enough to put together when rehearsal time is at a premium.
