93 Carmelite nuns with futuristic vision sing in a virtual choir

A Virtual Choir of Carmelites - published on 09/11/16

Nada te turbe

Let nothing disturb you.

Ninety-three discalced Carmelites in 24 countries emerged from their cloister to sing together in a virtual choir in honor of St. Teresa of Avila’s 500th birthday. This union of voices is the fruit of the musical vision of one Carmelite sister, and the creativity of a digital wiz in the Midwest. The choir is made up of Carmelite Nuns and Seculars from around the world and is accompanied by the Teresian Orchestra of St. James Cathedral in Seattle, Washington, USA, with music composed by Claire Sokol, OCD.

The result is a six-minute video of the sisters singing on a virtual stage created by executive producer, Scott Haines. In this video, St. Teresa of Avila’s famous words, “Let nothing disturb you,” are sung, forming a unique collage.
