Conductor Conversation: Amanda Quist discusses Lumina
From Talbott Library
Conductor Amanda Quist discusses the repertoire and the theme of "Lumina," Westminster Kantorei's recording, with WWFM's The Classical Network's David Osenberg. From a stunning single line of chant to the explosive polyphony of William Byrd and J.S. Bach, each of the works on this recording is in some way related to lightâ€™s presence in our life journey: exploring faith, death, love and transcendence. Repertoire spans the mystical 12th-century chant of Hildegard von Bingen through the Renaissance and Baroque eras, plus two Romantic-period gems based on the compositional styles of those earlier composers.
