This short piece for ensemble and choir was written in response to news reports of the abduction and presumed murder of five-year-old April Jones in Wales on October 1st, and it was a natural response to want to express my thoughts about this heartbreaking story in music in some small way. The Latin text Lux Aeterna asks the Lord to grant the dead eternal rest, and to let perpetual light shine upon them because he is merciful, and this piece is intended as an expression of that thought for this still-missing young girl.
