This three-movement work sets Hebrew texts from Job (3:20-23, "Why give the wretched light?"), Psalm 69 ("Rescue me, O God"), and Micah 4 (1-6, "And it will happen in days to come") using symmetrical scales from Messaien's list of "modes of limited transposition," which lend themselves to unexpected modulations, especially in the midst of imitative counterpoint. SATB a cappella with divisi, approximately 17 minutes long; quite difficult, suitable for accomplished collegiate or adult choirs.

Other scores

I've written a number of other pieces whose scores aren't yet available for online purchase for various reasons. These are SATB a cappella pieces, some with divisi up to 8 parts, written between 2010 and the present day. They range from 3 to 5 minutes long and are generally suitable for advanced high school choirs or for college or adult choirs. Some have been premiered by IOCSF over the years, others are as yet unperformed. They include settings of the following texts:

  • Yerushalayim Shel Zahav (Shemer; in Hebrew)
  • Hymn of Breaking Strain (Kipling)
  • i like my body when it is with your (e.e. cummings)
  • The Lake Isle of Innisfree (Yeats)
  • Ozymandias (Shelley)

Please contact me if you are interested in perusal scores of any of these pieces.
