Her sacred spirit soars
composer
2002
author of text

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Whitacre finds the poetry of Silvestri, a Vegas-born Los Angeles history teacher, ‘rich and full of possibility’. Her sacred spirit soars reads as a pastiche Elizabethan madrigal text, a hymn to Cecilia and Fair Oriana that Whitacre sets for double choir with characteristic fluency.
