  1. This is a minimalistic piece I wrote for the Feast of Corpus Christi. The melody I think is easy to sing for any amateur choir. I did not want to write a poliphonic and 'large', massive piece. I tried to express the beauty of the text by it's simplicity. You sing the verses between the repeat bars ( not needed to sing all of them), then you sing the 'Amen. Alleluia.' part. In theese short minimalistic pieces, I always let the conductor decide the dynamics and the accelerations-deceleration. Only the most important of them are written. As the harmonies I used, I'm open to any suggestion, that helps me to make the piece more likely fit in the mood it has. There might be more proper solutions I did not take into consideration. Thanks!
  2. Hi, This is my entry for the summer competition, I hope you enjoy. Some notes not covered by the program notes: 1) I know there are some minor errors in the score, namely lack of "instrument names" in the second variation. I didn't notice them until too late and I do not have the files with me to correct them - so be it. I also know that the variations are not titled, that was somewhat intentional but mostly a cause of me not having enough time to properly finish the score. Actually, Lilypond is my engraver of choice but I really didn't have time for all that noise this time around so I had to use MuseScore, which is just about the only thing I hate more than Lilypond. 2) I apologize for the lackluster quality of the audio. I was originally planning to record it myself in some sense of the word but again, time constraints caught up to me and I had to rely on MIDI which fails to convey much of what is in the score. 3) This was planned to be a set of five variations but I couldn't complete the two remaining variations in time so it is only a set of three as is. I plan to continue working on them and may post this work again in its completed form later on, perhaps with a real performance. These variations would have been the very first variation and the very last. So the ones you hear here are just the middle three - If it sounds like the piece ends abruptly that's because it does. EDIT: 4) Even though I said in the program notes that the microtones shouldn't be quarter tones, the playback does indeed only have quarter tones. It's not because that's the only thing that was available to me, I actually have very tight control of the intonation, but without real overtones the effect is a little bit too subtle to be exciting. Of course, singing quarter tones is just as impossible as singing in equal temperament, so the recording should definitely be taken with a grain of salt. 5) The music is very intricately tied to the text in a literal way but there is also a philosophical connection which is so impossibly personal that I would rather not talk about it. I'll leave that to the listeners to discover, or better yet, decide for themselves what the text means to them.
