The Sacred Veil
The Sacred Veil, by the American composer Eric Whitacre, a collaboration between Kammerkoret Bocca, musicians from Munor and dancers from Kompani Haugesund. The strong lyrics describes how a cancer diagnose is experienced, both for the sick and the next of kin, with feelings as fear, hope, despair, love and sorrow. The Sacred Veil is what separates us from those we have lost. This is a subject of matter which we all can relate to.
