Sure on This Shining Night

by Morten Lauridsen

After listening to a number of recordings, I’m beginning to think Lauridsen chose this text to punish choirs. The sh, sh, sh of the opening verse is nearly impossible to sing attractively. I think this choir did a good job. They also have very nice swells.
