This film celebrates the life and music of the artist whom musicologist Nick Strimple describes as 'the only American composer in history who can be called a mystic'. Exploring the relationship of art, nature and spirituality, Shining Night reveals Morten Lauridsen as a composer through the lens of his love for silence and solitude together with his passion for music and literature, with commentaries from other composers, conductors, singers and friends.

Deemed 'a heartening rarity' by the Wall Street Journal, Shining Night directed by Michael Stillwater is the premiere episode in the Song Without Borders documentary series, In Search of The Great Song. Winner of three Best Documentary awards, an Official Selection of 17 Film Festivals, Shining Night is hosted by choirs worldwide with screening events often including performances of Lauridsen's music.
