This is a Sacred SATB Choral arrangement in three movements: A Pater Omnipotens, Ave Maria, and Agnus Dei. So, each part is dedicated to one member of the “Holy Family.” (i.e. God, the Virgin Mary, and Jesus). So, have a listen, and let me know what you think in the comments below.
OUTLINE OF THE PIECE
The first movement begins the piece with a baritone chant, a newly written text which flows into a quasi-aleatoric section for the whole choir.
(the all-powerful Father) runs at ~2:30.
(Hail, Mary) The centerpiece of this choral work, the “Ave Maria” is a setting of the traditional Latin text from the Catholic liturgy, that I have updated with 20th century harmonies. The melody in this piece will stick with you, for sure. Run time for this movement is ~3:15.
Finally, the last piece is the “Agnus Dei” (lamb of God). This is a brief yet poignant bow to Jesus. Run time is ~1:30.
Overall, this is ~7 minutes to perform. But, it will definitely add something special to any concert!
