Over two days we filmed this beautiful and powerful song originally written and composed by Eric Whitacre

The group lit hundreds of candles (and some LEDs too) to create a warm and inviting atmosphere fitting for the music. To create the theme of life and death, John Morgan, Artistic Director of Kantorei, enlisted the talents of two dancers Sarah Dolan and Kelsie Marie Vanstone. With craft color grading, Ryan Northcott created an almost moonlit scene for "death" whereas "life" was bathed in warm bright light.

It's a gorgeous piece and visually stunning, we're really proud to show it to the world.
