Work Overview

This song cycle comprises ten songs with sacred themes.

Work Details

Year: 2013

Instrumentation: High/medium voice, piano.

Duration: 20 min.

Difficulty: Advanced

Contents note: Ave maria regina caelorum -- Rejoice in the Lord -- Even though -- Es gibt dur wenig seelen -- Praise the Lord my soul -- Kyrie -- The widow's offering -- The light of the sun -- Adoration -- Nearer my God.

There are some new songs and some songs which have been reworked for this song cycle. An interesting comparison can be made, for example, between this version of "Rejoice in the Lord" and my earlier rendition. In this version I have tried to include a leaning to major cadence, and also more arpeggiated Irish influenced chords to describe the playing of the harp. (ex. bar 3, third system, p3. the word "lyre"). I have also linked the piece with "Es gibt nur wenige seelen." (the fourth song), through the chords at bars 1 and 2, third system p.4. after 'O you righteous'.
