Eric says:

"I’m thrilled to announce that my latest album – The Sacred Veil – is out today. Written over a period of three years with my best friend, poet Charles Anthony Silvestri (Tony), it’s a story of great beauty and love, loss and grief.
 
Writing The Sacred Veil felt profoundly important and the warm reception to the world premiere in Los Angeles, and the European premiere in London, meant the world to Tony and me. It’s a work that we are intensely proud of.
 
The album was recorded January 2020 in California. It features extraordinary performances from the Los Angeles Master Chorale, cellist Jeffrey Zeigler and pianist Lisa Edwards. I am proud to have worked with legendary producer, Elaine Martone, on this album and to be sharing it through Signum Records. This recording also represents the culmination of two memorable and artistically rewarding terms as Artist-in-Residence with the Los Angeles Master Chorale. Their achievement under Artistic Director, Grant Gershon, is a cultural beacon for our nation."
