Libera me, Domine, de morte aeterna in die illa tremenda” (“Deliver me, Lord, from death eternal on that fearful day.”)

This music touches the realization that we are capable of producing our own day of judgment, fire and wrath. The music is a powerful evocation of hope. The chorus part is single-line Gregorian Chant. It can be sung by men’s women’s, children’s or mixed choirs, or by members of the wind ensemble. Vocal parts are written into each instrumental part.

My students have really been enjoying your work and I know I have enjoyed learning the music.

Lauren Wright, Berry College

…another very emotional and gripping work on a grand scale.
