Inspired by the silence of nature, Lauridsen composes works of timeless beauty on his island home in the Pacific Northwest. Through the eyes of other composers, conductors, singers and music students, the story of Lauridsen unfolds- and his music is performed- by Volti, Con Anima, SF Choral Society, and Aberdeen (Scotland) University Choral Society, together with soundtracks from Polyphony, the Dale Warland Singers, and The Singers/Minnesota Choral Artists. Filmed in the United States and United Kingdom, 'Shining Night' gives viewers a look into the private life of a most remarkable artist considered a genius in the field of musical creation.
"Shining Night: A Portrait of Composer Morten Lauridsen
illuminates the person behind the music, giving us a rare glimpse into its creative source." -Tim Sharp, Executive Director, American Choral Directors Association
"Morten Lauridsen reaches into his listeners to brighten what is most ancient, sacred, and beautiful in the human soul, and reveals that it lives within each of us.
