    O Magnum Mysterium
When the Master Chorale premiered a new work by Morten Lauridsen in 1994, few could have anticipated this composer’s meteoric rise to stardom with the exception of Paul Salamunovich, who famously turned to the audience and proclaimed, “Until now, Vittoria’s O Magnum Mysterium has been the most beautiful and well recognized setting of this text composed to date. I predict that will change after tonight.” And he was right! Lauridsen, a recipient of the National Medal of Arts awarded by the President at a 2007 White House ceremony, soon took the choral world by storm. The Master Chorale was gifted with a six-year Composer in Residence, culminating in several premieres and a Grammy® Award-nominated CD: Lux Aeterna. To honor this legacy, you’ll hear many of Lauridsen’s favorite works with one or two accompanied by the composer himself.
