A vocal library from the Grammy-winning master of the choral genre.
Recorded in the famous Lyndhurst Hall at London’s Air Studios, the Eric Whitacre Choir library features 22 of the conductor’s best singers, 170 techniques and 111 evolutions. The latter two were conducted by Whitacre himself.
The Spitfire Audio collection shares the same acoustic DNA with Spitfire’s esteemed orchestral catalogue, having been recorded in the same hall that Hans Zimmer Strings and Ólafur Arnalds Chamber Evolutions were.
The Eric Whitacre Choir is available now. And until 9 November, you can get the full library for a promotional price of £399. Thereafter, the collection will set you back £549.

Nothing gets to the heart of music like the human voice – and Spitfire’s most anticipated release to date is a choir that captures the breathtaking range of our most personal musical instrument.
Crafted and conducted by Grammy winner Eric Whitacre and showcasing his elite family of singers, this encyclopaedia of the voice will enrich your composition. It will also blow away any dusty perception of the choir as a niche, occasional ingredient, reserved for angels and demons.
With these sounds at your fingertips, you will start to think differently about the human voice. For this library, we returned to the luxury of Lyndhurst Hall at Air Studios, which means Eric Whitacre Choir shares the acoustic DNA of Spitfire’s orchestral catalogue, and will work hand in hand with those libraries.
