Vocals: Andreas and Ursula

Welcome to the next installment of our Seven Sacred Songs. Lux Æterna means "Eternal Light." It's sometimes called the "communion chant" and is included in the traditional Roman Catholic Requiem and Proper Mass.

The words are fragments from the Catholic "Missa da Requiem:"

lux aeterna luceat eis Domine ...
(may the eternal light shine on them o Lord)
et lux perpetua luceat eis ...
(and the eternal light may shine on them)
in paradisum deducant te Angeli ...
(Angels will lead you into paradise)
in tuo adventu suscipiant te martyres ...
(when you come the martyrs will take you in)
et perducant te in civitatemes sanctam Jerusem ...
(and lead you to the holy cities of Jerusem)

Andreas' 15 year-old daughter, Ursula, joined us again on this track to contribute her wonderful vocals to our project. Many THANKS to both of you for your incredible performances and passion for music!

My hope for these songs is to represent a personal and historical portrait of the life of Jesus of Nazareth. I plan to use the Christian scriptures, liturgical and baroque texts, the Urantia Book, lesser known historical gospels of Christ (Essene, Gnostic, etc.), and my own writings to portray a more universalized portrait of Jesus Christ--free from any one specific doctrine or religious creed. The life of Jesus presents a compelling and timeless tale of spiritual growth and human values that I find very exciting to portray through music and song.
THANKS FOR LISTENING! smiley

May the light of LOVE shine forever upon you,
~Justin & Andreas

Wonderful work -- just amazing. Jesus (Yeshua) is referred to as the Way. Certainly this piece of music glorifies Yeshua and reveals the sacred entrance into the mystery of Christ. What else can I say--well five stars on all counts.

My Spirit has been lifted

Listeners Interpretation: At the last supper, the Apostils had asked their wifes to stand-by their side to sing in front of glory of thy almighty son of God.

Pros: A well structure piece from the Intro to the End. What a beautiful voice you have, Ursula! In addition, of course, Andreas distinguished voice(s) encompasses the soundscape. The Production provides an awesome Cathedral atmosphere (nice touch!). The ambiance is indeed stimulating. A complex arrangement, layering and transitioning hurdled between the instrumentation and vocal(s) tracks and the outcome well, a perfect fit! Bravo of the Composition & Production Justin! Bravo to the Collab!

Cons: None.

Suggestions: None

Listener Note: Thank you for the history notation regarding this composition. I am intrigue to know how many tracks used, what were the instruments; keyboard/midi (organ, chimes sfx, etc.) used hence, may want to consider tagging on a blog for this piece (just a thought).

~Doc smiley

PS – There is so much happening in this piece, I had to stop what I was working on smiley

This is amazing Justin! These voices are the perfect counterpart to your musical explorations. All the elements are situated with throughtful precision in this mix that truely is greater than the sum of its parts. You have a fascinating way of blending instrumentation that avoids enticing the listener to gravitate towards a particular sound, but rather encourages the comprehension of the total effect - a magical effect, transcending sonic details and technicalities. The meandering melodic lines weave in and out of throbbing drones that innovatively evoke images of illumination and spiritual transformation while avoiding the contrivance associated with "new age" tonalities.

Undoubtedly a masterpiece my friend - you mix art and heart like no other!

This is gorgeous. A breath-taking blend of instruments and voice. Simple yet not. So layered. But so artfully done so that nothing overshadows the others. It really is genius. The groundedness of the male voice versus the ethereal female. Just amazing. Thank you for this experience.

Beautiful.... enchanting.. The pictures Im seeing, time is standing still, and the past begins to flash by... Im in the 4th dimension that of Einstein's E =MC2//// Im on the side lines as light starts to slow down, and stops and reverses.. Im watching Alexander the Great conquer cities, and atilla the hun put pressures on the frontier walls off a sickened ancient Rome... Yet Im feeling the effects of Modern Rome, The traditions, the midici families of gone past.... and leonardo painting in his studio, as the street beggars outside run about happy and smiling just to get a cop of bread ... and a shoe shine boy whisks up at me , and with his golden tooth, smiles, that smile of Renaissance confidence.. and I know that all is well in culture... all is serene...

Maturity in artistic development is happing here.. I think thier may be a renaissance right her going on at icomps.. This is another example of such things appearing..

Dont stop know.. KEEP GOING...!!! Just remember.. It gets harder.. So prey more..
