🎥 Carmen's setting of ‘My people hath been lost sheep’, the text from Jeremiah, is a beautiful spiritual account of the Biblical story of Jews in Babylonian exile. The piece also translates equally to the way many of us feel in the present day. Watch our new video to hear Carmen talking about her piece from our #LumenDeLumine album. Link in bio 🎵

🎥 Barry Hopwood has been a member of Lumen for two years and was inspired to write The Lord’s Prayer for our visit to St George’s, Windsor Castle in 2017. Combined with his Agnus Dei, these two short prayers were perfect additions to our #LumenDeLumine album. Video link in bio!

🎥 Michael's beautiful new setting of Beati quorum via sits at the heart of our #LumenDeLumine album. Its beautiful melodic lines and expressive harmonies bring a new interpretation to the well known classic text, made famous by Charles Villiers Stanford - however, we think that Michael's version might become the new favourite setting for choirs across the world. Follow the link in our bio to watch the video!

New video 🎥 Matt Wetmore talks about his piece O Sapientia from our #LumenDeLumine album. Link in bio! Matt Wetmore's beautiful piece, featured on the Lumen de Lumine album is a new setting of O Sapientia, the first of the Latin prayers known as the “O Antiphons”. The setting uses a motive of parallel sixths sweeping through lush chord changes throughout, transforming in various ways depending on the text. At last, at the climax, a third parallel line is added to the texture on the call for this wisdom to come and teach the world.

🎥 Find out more about 'The way of life' from our #LumenDeLumine album. Link to the video in our bio. Using the words of the Didache as inspiration, 'The way of life' builds on the mantra ‘do not thou to another’. At first keeping the chord spacing fairly tight, the piece then develops with the bass part moving downwards to create deliberately uneven chord spacing, reminiscent of the atavism that sits at the core of the text. The harmonic ambiguity and unresolved final chord illustrate the fact that on this, and other moral issues, we have a long way to go.

🎥 Find out more about 'Safe in the arms of He', a piece from our #LumenDeLumine album. Video link in our bio. Following the loss of her beloved nephew, Joanna couldn't help but put pen to paper and write 'Safe in the arms of He', which we are delighted to feature on our Lumen de Lumine album. This choral piece is soft and gentle, reflecting Oliver's character with the interwoven theme throughout of God’s hand at work in their lives. The words taken and inspired from their book; ‘Love Oliver’ and Joanna hopes it can be a blessing to those in similar circumstances.’
