Lux for choir organ and 8 voices is a meditation on light. It’s not the light that illuminates the material world, but the eternal light that is the universal symbol of divinity, for which the soul yearns. It’s the light that, together with sound, is the basis of the creation of universe in many cosmogonies, including the biblical one. It’s the Light-Sound which is emanation of God.
The text sung by the choir is taken from Antiphona ad communionem of the Catholic Requiem Mass. The sound of the words of Lux aeterna blends with the sound of organ in an atmosphere of calm and mysticism.
