Spoleto Festival USA, Charleston, South Carolina, 2017
Joe Miller will also conduct the Festival’s ever popular Westminster Choir Concerts at the Cathedral Church of St. Luke and St. Paul. The choir, lauded as “remarkable for its precision, unanimity, and power” by The New York Times, will explore its striking sonic capabilities in a program titled A Thousand Years to Live (May 29 and June 3). It will feature works by American composers Dominick DiOrio, Kile Smith, and Paul Crabtree, along with Brahms’s Three Songs, op. 42 for a cappella choir, Latvian composer Uģis Prauliņš’s Laudibus in Sanctis, and music from the Sacred Harp and Ring Shout traditions.
 "Laudibus in Sanctis" (“Praise the Holiest” from Psalm 150), composed by Ugis Praulins, called upon the singers to explore not only the extremes of their dynamic palette but also of their tessituras. The basses produced clear, articulated low notes while the sopranos sang the high pitches with grace and a sense of ease that belies how difficult such notes really are. Reviewer David Friddle, an accomplished choral conductor, organist, composer and educator, is director of music at St. John the Beloved Catholic Church in Summerville. http://www.postandcourier.com/spoleto/review-westminster-choir-delivers-a/article_56a79238-44a0-11e7-8af1-8f5e29cf9983.html

‘Music and love explains everything‘, says Latvian composer Uģis Prauliņš. In a musical language that is immediate, vivid and personal, Missa Rigensis combines baroque polyphony, minimalism with the energy of rock. In its final dissolve, the Mass reaches for the beyond by looking inward.

SWR Vokalensemble. Dirigent Florian Benfer.  
 Die Musik schreibt der lettische Komponist Ugis Praulin, der nicht nur virtuos für Stimmen komponiert, sondern auch mit viel Witz und Humor mit unterschiedlichsten Musikstilen zu spielen weiß. Schon einmal hat das SWR Vokalensemble mit ihm zusammengearbeitet: Das musikalische Märchen »Die Nachtigall des Kaisers« wurde 2015 mit dem »Echo Klassik für Kinder« ausgezeichnet.
