Guy Forbes currently serves as the associate conductor of choir and chair of music education at Millikin University. His beautiful setting of this timeless text focuses on the central idea of “light born of light.” Forbes captures the essence of light breaking darkness through his use of warm, lush harmonies and lyrical melodies that flow throughout the voices. This deeply spiritual piece requires mastery of legato singing in all voice parts due to the heavy use of divisi scoring throughout the work. O Nata Lux will serve as a beautiful centerpiece for your holiday concert.
