 Amazon.com: Paul McCartney: Ecce Cor Meum: Music: Paul McCartney,Gavin Greenaway,David Theodore,Academy of St. ...   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
Paul McCartney's new "classical" oratorio is called Ecce Cor Meum, which translates as "Behold My Heart." The idealistic texts, also by McCartney, are meditations on goodness, spirituality, peace, and love, and are well served by the pretty, Romantic melodies; the long choral and orchestral sections flow one into the next.
Without a doubt, Paul is at the top of his game right now, and the man truly is the greatest living composer of music.
McCartney does not and cannot write counterpoint, which is the essence of choral music; instead, Ecce Cor Meum utilizes a sort of a lead singer/backup singers construction, like what you'd expect to find in a pop song.
