Every week, Choral Fixation explores the majesty of the human voice. This week, Midge Woolsey presents new choral music, including the latest from Eric Whitacre. The current “rock star” of the choral world, Whitacre’s new album Light and Gold includes lush settings of secular and sacred verse. The program also includes new recodings Arvo Part, Nico Muhly and the Calmus Ensemble of Leipzig, which makes its Carnegie Hall debut this Tuesday.

The Reger pieces are still around after 100 years because of their purity. Reger made no attempt to be stylishor or to tittilate, there is no affectation , just good counterpoint, and for Reger, a surprising clarity of texture.
Whether anything else on the program will be around in 100 years, and for what reasons, is a question.
