🎥 Our final #LumenDeLumine composer film is founder Benjamin Thiele-Long with his setting of 'Dreams', a poem by American poet, novelist, and playwright Paul Laurence Dunbar. Dunbar's work is known for its colourful language and a conversational tone, with a brilliant rhetorical structure. 'Dreams' is no exception and Benjamin's setting mirrors the reflective and comforting nature of dreaming, enhancing the text's colourful use of language, and enveloping the listener in Dunbar's imagination.

🎥 Link in bio: The penultimate composer in our video series is the brilliantly talented Sam Olivier, whose piece ‘There is no dusk to be’ opens our #LumenDeLumine album perfectly. Sam sang as one of our tenors for just over a year, and we are proud to have been able to include his piece as part of the project. His setting of this stunning poem reflects the journey of life, the singularities of life and death that we must all experience, and the celebration of everything life brings in between.
🎥 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!
