"Shining Night," A Portrait of Morten Lauridsen
Morten Lauridsen's music has been embraced by choruses all over the world. In "Shining Night," the new hour-long film by Michael Stillwater, we experience up close the sources of Lauridsen's inspiration in nature and poetry, and his interactions with singers and conductors in rehearsal. See trailer here.

"Shining Night" was named Best Documentary in the DC Independent Documentary Film Festival (Feb. 2012). The next screening is in New York City's Society for Ethical Culture on March 30; a performance of Lauridsen's "Lux Aeterna" follows on the 31st in Avery Fisher Hall. Lauridsen will be present for both events.
