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.
