The BYU Singers are excited to release another music video! This is a recording of “Alleluia” by Swedish composer Fredrik Sixten. Sixten comments on his compositional style and technique,”When I write music, it is important to me that I reach the listener…for me it’s natural to use common elements – like melody and harmony – but also to make use of contrasts. When they think they know where they’re heading, I take a step in another direction.” This piece, “Alleluia” is a perfect example of Sixten’s ideology. We have felt a sense of ethereal beauty and heavenly awe emanating from this music that cannot fully be expressed by regular human language. The word “Alleluia” enables us to communicate profound feelings of faith and devotion from the depth of our souls.
