Beginning in 2009, artists, scientists, traditional elders and others around the world were asked, ‘What is the Great Song for you?’
Our first film, Shining Night (2012) features the life and music of one of those interviewed- American choral composer and National Medal of Arts recipient Morten Lauridsen.
Our second release, In Search of the Great Song (2016), includes 50 interviews and a wide variety of music from around the world.
More people were interviewed than appear in these films; the universality of the Great Song touches many, and it was not possible to include them all in one documentary.
Meet the film’s ‘players’in this online gallery or via video.
Meet others and share your own viewpoint at the Great Song Cafe.
