“Hymn to Love,” featuring Trygve Seim & Ståle Storløkken, is the first single on Morten Lindberg’s Grammy-winning album LUX, and opens the requiem that takes its inspiration from Gregorian chant. Engineered and recorded by Morten Lindberg, LUX is the third release in a conceptual trio made in the Nidaros Cathedral in Trondheim, Norway. With hauntingly beautiful string layers, choral voices, and textured instrumentation, the album is a Requiem commemorating victims of the 2011 massacre in Utøya. The album won the Grammy award for Best Immersive Audio Album in 2020.
No stranger to accolades, Lindberg and his record label 2L have received a record 28 nominations since 2006, fifteen of which for Best Surround Sound Album alone. With LUX, recorded in discrete 11.1 at DXD resolution, he brings a mastery to all 11 tracks that are reproduced here for 5.1 listening.
