About this playlist

Written in response to the death of his best friend’s wife, The Sacred Veil is Eric Whitacre's longest piece to date and, as he tells us, one that he found more difficult than anything he’s written so far. Exclusively for Primephonic, Eric talks us through the stark honesty he was forced to approach this piece with, his view on sacred music and the recording process with the Los Angeles Master Chorale.
