ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Illumine joins together virtuosity, grace, and passion to bring audiences some of the most beautiful music ever created. The members of Illumine have performed all over the United States and across the world from Chicago to Japan, Boston to Great Britain, Tulsa to Russia and more. Each member is an acclaimed artist in their own discipline and have shared the stage with such ensembles as the Alliance Brass Quintet, Skylark, MagnificatBoston, The Boston Pops, and the Rolling Stones.

The ensemble was brought together by a common love for the music written for trumpet and voice. Some of the greatest masters of Western Music have contributed to this beautiful lexicon including Johann Sebastian Bach, Georg Friedrick Handel, Alessandro Scarlatti, and Henry Purcell. While the bulk of music for this ensemble was written during the Baroque period, the versatility of the performers allows them to branch out over the centuries and includes everything from the original Baroque works to jazz.

Trumpeter Chris O'Hara and organist/pianst Mark Engelhardt have performed together for several years and recorded two albums for the Rowjack label (Sound the Trumpet, and johann sebastian BACH). Soprano Sarah Moyer joined the duo for their third collaboration Lux Aeterna, which served as the inspiration for this ensemble.

The pairing of trumpet and voice is a natural one; they complement each other and combine in the elegant dance of music. Composers have always placed these two instruments together, but none more successfully than the Baroque masters. The music performed on this album shows the tremendous versatility of the ensemble with songs that range from the religious to the militaristic and from regal to mournful. These beautiful masterworks define eternal light, Lux Aeterna.
