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.

They that wait upon the Lord
click for audio

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 voice 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.

There is an extended version of this piece that was premiered at The David Geffen Hall - Lincoln Center in NYC on April 13th of 2019.
