      I fell in love with this piece when I played it in 2005. Thank you for coming out and personally adjusting this piece for the symphony!

      Played this two years ago with the districts band. Closest a piece has ever gotten to making me cry while playing it.

      Heard this last night conducted by Mr. Green with the Georgia All College band. Beautiful. Just beautiful.

      I'm reminded here of the climax on Bliss from Paradise Lost. So lovely

      One of my favourite pieces to sing/listen to. It takes me away to a place I can't describe, but whilst I'm there, I forget where I came from. Eric you are truly inspiring to me, as a performer and a composer. I hope to one day perfect my craft as you have, and if I achieve a fraction of what you have, then I'll be truly happy. Thank you.

      I am amazed and moved by your creations. I have downloaded many of tour vocal works, but are there also instrumental recordings of works such as this fine example (Lux Aurumque)? Many thanks for leading the way.

      @AlexWinkler: THANK YOU, Alex - that's a huge compliment.

      This piece for chorale is exemplary use of the ensemble's timbre, and it translates very well in this arrangement. This piece is required listening for my music comp. class among Poulenc, Ligeti, Penderecki, Webern, and other notable composers of the century. Thank you for bringing consonance back to classical music.

      The Bliss tie-in here works wonderfully well, it's amazing how much it adds to the overall feel of Lux. And way of bringing it back.
