The Requiem 'Lux Aeterna' was originally composed by Mykhayil A.Shukh
in 1988. It was premiered in Donetsk (Ukraine) in 1990/1991. The recordings took part at festivals in Gori (Georgia) and at 'Vorsel Meetings' in Ukraina. Re-recorded, re-engineered and re-arranged by Mykhayil A.Shukh
& Olegh Kolyada
especially for this re-release in 2010.
'Lux Aeterna' is a chamber requiem that follows a classical arrangement with soprano, bass and tenor vocals juxtaposed with angelic chants of a Children's Choir, piano and organ passages of simple composition yet true purifying power. The requiem is dedicated to all children that died during the 1932-1933 famine in Ukraina.
