Conductor Conversation: Amanda Quist discusses Lumina
From Talbott Library on June 9th, 2021
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.
