I first discovered Morten Lauridsen on a course during the summer called, 'The Eton Choral Course'. The course was designed by conductor and director of music at Eton college: Ralph Alwood, and provides vocal training and choral singing experience to enthusiastic young musicians. It was my first time on the course, and I was curious as to what we were going to be singing. To my surprise it was a great line-up, including Morten Lauridsen's 'O Magnum Mysterium' (as well as Herbert Howells' 'I Love All Beauteous Things' which I posted about earlier this month).
