About:  My first choral setting of a sacred Latin text, this piece was written for premiere by the International Orange Chorale at the San Francisco Conservatory’s 9th Bienniel Choral Composition Competition. I love the grand declaration of the whole world rejoicing in God’s salvation. With long melismatic lines, this piece draws from the world of Pérotin — musical subtlety as the conduit for great truths.

Premiere International Orange Chorale, conducted by Zaine Fiala, on May 10th 2014, at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music's Caroline Hume Concert Hall, San Francisco, CA.
