Ave Maria
I composed Ave Maria in New York City in 2014. This piece was commissioned by The Men and Boys choir of The Church of the Transfiguration in New York City. This piece has a traditional latin Christian prayer asking for the intercession of the Virgin Mary, the mother of Jesus. This text is commonly used in sacred liturgies and it has been set to music by many classical composers such as F. Schubert and C. Gounod. The choral texture is very light, homophonic, and the piece should be sung as someone making a sincere prayer. Right after the choral setting, there is also a voice/piano version.

Voca me
I composed Voca me in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in 2009. The text is part of a Latin hymn called “Dies Irae” attributed to either Thomas of Celano or to Latino Malabranca Orsini . The hymn dates from at least the thirteenth century, though it is possible that it is much older, with some sources ascribing its origin to St. Gregory the Great, St. Bernard of Clairvaux, or St. Bonaventure. The poem describes the day of judgment, the last trumpet summoning souls before the throne of God, where the saved will be delivered and the unsaved cast into eternal flames. The main theme is sung by all the parts in different moments. The repetition of the main theme is a reinforcement of the meaning of this prayer.

Self Awareness Missa Brevis
I composed Self-Awareness Missa Brevis in New York City in 2013. This piece sets the invariable portions of the Eucharistic liturgy (principally that of the Catholic Church, the Anglican Communion, and Lutheranism) to choral music. This “short mass” can be performed separately or in its entirely. The a cappella choral texture is mostly homophonic, and the modulations try to embellish the meaning of the words. The dynamics define the phrasing and give the whole shape of each movement.

They that wait upon the Lord
I composed They that wait upon the Lord in New York City in 2015. This piece was commissioned by the choir of Wesley United Methodist Church, Vienna, VA, USA. This piece features a lively beginning in which the piano part presents the theme from the middle section. The first entrance of the choir presents the main theme, and right after that, the text is underlined by unison on different voice parts. There are some moments of polyphony and key changes. The choral texture is appropriate for an operatic approach. The piano part is complimentary in activity to the voices parts, but at the same time, it has a completely independent chord progression. The overall dynamic is forte, and there is an uplifting feeling throughout the entire piece.
