CX Choral Song Cycle was composed in New York City in 2013, and was officially premiered in January 26th 2014 in Boston, Massachusetts, USA.Chico Xavier was a medium and philanthropist of Brazil’s spiritism movement in the XX century. His thoughts talk about good will and charity, and they help many people to have a happier life.The original language of the thoughts is Brazilian Portuguese. I translated them to English.Each song features one or two thoughts and the vocal texture was written to enhance their meaning. The songs can be performed separately or even in a different order. What is important is to share the message with everyone in performance.

Self Awareness Missa Brevis
click for audio

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 entirety. 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.

The Micro Mass
I composed The Micro Mass in New York City in 2020. 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 very “short mass” can be performed separately or in its entirety. Although it is recommended that this work should be performed a cappella, the piano reduction can be played during live performances as a “support” for the singers. Also, every movement features one section of the choir as the melody, giving the opportunity to singers in every section of the choir to carry the main theme. This work was created to address the need for liturgical music that does not take much time from the service and still can feature the beauty and the poetry of these sacred texts. The entire Mass can be performed in approximately 6:00 minutes.

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.
