Aaaah yes, the choir - the harmonies, the frisson, the hairs standing up on the back of your neck as a soprano haunts your soul.
This is a winter track - best listened to while looking out the window - watching the outside - inclement weather is the perfect accompaniment.
While the erudite will translate the Latin and find meaning, I prefer the bliss of not knowing - free to interpret Eric Whiteacre’s gorgeous work in the manner most fitting to my needs.
And while I find catharsis in the middle - it’s the ending of the track that fills me with warmth and encourages me to share.
This track is a gift - from me to you - I hope you enjoy.

About the Curator - Andrew McCluskey
The first visual memory I have is that of the white upright piano in Singapore, Hell and the Dark Forces lived at the bottom, Heaven and the Angels at the top, they would play battles through my fingers and I was hooked.
As a psychology graduate I studied how sound affects human performance.
As a musician I compose instrumental music that stimulates your brain but doesn't mess with your language centers, leaving you free to be creative and brilliant without distraction.
As a curator I research how music can improve your life and create flow - I can tell you what music to listen to when studying for a test and why listening to sad music can make you feel better.
As the founder of musicto I’m on a mission to inspire a global audience of music lovers and artists through the development of people powered playlists.
