The World's Greatest Music
Since his childhood days as a choirboy, Aled Jones has always loved choral music. So every Sunday on Classic FM, he invites you to be spiritually uplifted by his Choral Classic. Find out more about the pieces here and reflect on a stunning photo as you listen.
For this stirring piece, the Norwegian composer was inspired by a photograph of Alaska’s Mount McKinley. "I was looking at this photo throughout the writing process, making sure that the energy and atmosphere of the music corresponded with the feeling I got from looking at the picture," he has said. "The Sancta Maria text seemed to kind of fit into what I was looking for in this piece, expressing something mystical, and kind of regal." Photo: CC-BY-SA-2.0.
