James Whitbourn

Cor Cantiamo

Cor Cantiamo, NIU’s professional choir in residence, presents the world premiere Thursday night of a chamber version of “The Seven Heavens” by Grammy-nominated British composer James Whitbourn.

It depicts the life of author, scholar and Christian apologist C.S. Lewis in a journey through the planets as they were conceived of in the Middle Ages. Getting the work to the stage was a journey in itself.
