I am currently singing in a Chorale and this wonderful piece of art was brought to my attention today:
Eric also gave a TED talk about the virtual choir idea here:
This thread can also be about the wonderful art of Choral music in general. As one final thing, I wanted to share our Chorale's performance of an original composition by one of our student members and composition majors entited "O Vos Omnes". It was sung at Chapman University's Choral Festival earlier this semester:
Our composer is an Eric Whitacre fan and you can hear some influence there. He and the rest of us are thrilled that it will be our honor and privilege to study the music "Water Night" this semester and next semester.
I apologize for the quality which is not super great, it was recorded by someone in the audience.

I'm thrilled to see a choral music thread! I'm sad to see that no one has posted in it
When I read that your choir sang "O Vos Omnes" I got all excited because I thought that it was the Casals version (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RlcAqb-h98A) which my choir has sung in the past.
Here's something my group sang last Christmas season: Gratias Agimus Tibi & Propter Magnam Gloriam from Vivaldi's GLORIA (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r8M1Uu051sg).
I'm a huge fan of what I like to call "Scary Choral Music" - things like Dies Irae by Mozart (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pqaARDsiJv4), Get You Up by Knut Nystedt (I can't find a recording of this anywhere ), Atomic Bird by Yoko Kanno (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UUcDKXjR2-8), and Daniel, Daniel by Undine S. Moore (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JVALm7LGXTA).
Do you know any scary choral music that I might like?
