To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This is a life-changing documentary, soulfully portrayed and spiritually relevant. The translation and interpretation from poetry to choral music and that beautiful interaction is breathtaking. The humbling depth of the maestro's thoughts and wisdom will stay with me forever. Your life may be less if you don't have a copy as a frequent reference point, not for the shelf! Indulge, savour, redefine! I am "singing my song" now....and "changing lives",
As a new Lauridsen fan this was an excellent insight into the man and his music. There is a blend of remote island photography, interview tributes and behind the scenes work with some of the worlds' finest choirs. This provides a really engaging backdrop to Lauridsen's own explanation of his love of poetry and his musical journey. All interspersed with exerpts of his finest choral pieces. Brilliant !
This is a very simple yet profound film. Lauridsen is as enigmatic as his music. If you want to escape the hustle and bustle of modern life, then enjoy this film, and contemplate real meaning of our existence. Beatifully put together, the film looks at the composer, his music and the natural world that is his inspiration.
