I began writing my Missa brevis in December 2000. At this time I was experiencing self-doubts about the seriousness of becoming a composer, but nevertheless I continued writing, guided by the inspiration of the choral works of Bardos, which were presented at a Kodaly Summer School I attended in late 2001. Over the next two years I revisited this SSA divisi work to eventually have it published as a work in four movements - Kyrie, Gloria, Sanctus and Agnus Dei.
With its changing textures and harmonies, Missa brevis is a piece for choirs who are not afraid of a challenge!
