This first episode of the "Song Without Borders" series, In Search of the Great Song, is also the first documentary about the artist considered to be one of the greatest living choral composers. A National Medal of the Arts recipient and named "An American Choral Master" by the National Endowment for the Arts, Lauridsen has achieved the status of the most frequently performed modern choral composer. Featuring his music performed by choirs in America and Europe, the film gives the viewer a rare glimpse of his life and his creative work.
