This is a piece for a capella SATB choir, 4- or 8-part. The recording will give you nightmares so listen at your own risk (I had to sing and record each part separately—with a little help from a pitch alterer for those soprano and alto notes). Don't get too crazy with the recording; it's far from perfect, and it's really just an approximation of what a choir might sound like singing it. I also made some changes to the lyrics so what's sung doesn't always match what's written. I'm mostly interested in feedback on the piece's musicality. I'm hoping it reflects the meaning conveyed in the lyrics (the score has those). Writing for human voices is probably my favorite form of musical composition, and I had a TON of fun putting this one together. If all goes well, it will be played at a local college's Christmas candlelight service! As always, I look forward to your input! Thanks in advance!
It is my first composition for choir, it was composed in 2016, as an "illustration" for a music theory dissertation. In the piece I used a special self-developed tone-organization stucture, which is based on quart. This composing system is quite important in my progression as a composer. The poem was written by Endre Ady, who was a hungarian poet in early 20th century. The piece is performed by Allegro Barbaro Chamber Choir in Budapest in the May of 2017. I am curious, what you think about the composition, so enjoy it, and share with me your experiences. Thanks! Ps.: Sorry, I forgot the score, but it's been attached now.
