SATB + Piano + Crystal Glasses
We are all stars, we are to illuminate and be illuminated by those around us. This piece will always remain in my heart because it has been the result of the commission of very luminous people who have given me warmth while I was recovering from a hard setback of health. This work is the adventure of mutual support. We are lighting our way but the neighboring stars -those people who are our loved ones on any plane of existence- create and guide that way with more light than we are capable of perceiving.
The Last March of Destiny
The earth is submerged in darkness. A voice of light that comes from the beginning of time resounds at the edge of the portal where the angels live. It is the resounding of the march of the mountains awakening every living being on the face of the earth and calling the angels. It is the sound that calls the beginning of a new era. The gray cloak that once covered the sky is transformed into radiant light. All forces manage to unite to grant a new opportunity. Now is the time to live with determination, wisdom and humility. Thanking our ancestors and the environment for giving us a second chance. Celebrating with the commitment to use this new era to improve each other.
Land of Angels
Land of Angels represents the uncertainty of the time in which it was written. Solo passages, dynamics dominated by PP and P and many moments of silence. Its sound is intended to immerse us in great introspection at the same time that we enter a paradise, a world reigned by angels.
SSA + A solo
This work is demanding, it requires questioning social roots and dogmas. It is a work that was born to support the LGBTIQ + community. This piece has a soul committed to equal rights and opportunities among people. A non-normative person is one who has evaluated himself and asked many questions to find the true inner self. That is not something so common in this society. This work is full of questions, internal fights and the fighting spirit necessary to overthrow dogmas.
La Magia del Río
We are brothers of the same species and maybe we do not realize but our differences ideological, behavioral, religious, gender, etc. – In truth are skills to complement us and if we unite them, we will have access to all the knowledge of all the truths existing in humanity.
We must be tolerant and learn from one another because we are in the same boat traveling together and to live a wonderful life, we must listen to each other and unite to awaken our kindness and create synergistic relationships. So we will always remember that we are the same species and we will find peace.
The questions, however simple and short, can take up a lot of space in our minds, leading to insomnia and uncertainty. This piece tackles a simple premise and the overload of textures that generate confusion and harassment. It contains literally whispered secrets, hidden truths and disturbing harmonies. A surprising piece for any type of choir.
This piece was born as a work to highlight school bulling. A piece that paints every section of the text beginning with whiplash and disturbing contemporary writing. Finding the light and the true being in the middle and culminating with a long that represents death itself.
The Secret of Life
Sometimes we face the question of what we should do with our lives; if we are on the right path. This work teaches us that we must find ourselves, we must not judge anyone in their choices, we must live to fulfill our desires and, above all, to love. We must love life, value humanity. We must keep in mind that life is a miracle and do something worthwhile.
SSAA or TTBB or SATB
Description by Donna Sprowles
Ave crux, spes unica is a Latin pious expression meaning, “Hail to the Cross, our only hope”. This expression has a long history in Catholic and Anglican piety.
“O Crux” is beautiful in the sense of calm it evokes. From the lowest of the low sustained notes to the soaring upper voices, the words and the music become one. The tempo and dynamic changes occur so smoothly as to give the listener a feeling of peace. Yet still at the same time, a rising feeling of hope is exciting. This piece is so very well balanced and crafted, it has become a favorite with women’s as well as men’s choirs in countries all around the world.
Each person has a voice and each voice has a truth to say. In this work all the melodic lines are important and to understand the whole, we must listen to each voice. It is the sum of each of the truths that makes us understand and build a wonderful reality. In synthesis “Entre Humanos” will make us understand that each opinion is valid and that without discriminating and listening carefully, we can find a truth that transcends us.
O Magnum Mysterium
SSAA or TTBB
Notes from Morna Edmundson
Director of Elektra Women’s Choir
This setting of O Magnum Mysterium is both very challenging and rewarding. With huge ranges of tessitura, dynamics, and tempo, it is more like a landscape than a setting of the text. It provided a powerful high point of tension in our concert and one could tell the audience was engaged in its drama. SSAA with divisi and a soprano soloist at the beginning and end. Not recommended for children’s choirs due to the extreme vocal ranges on both ends.
Cuando Neruda Soñó
This piece is an adventure of someone who is disconnected from himself and his environment, and undertakes a journey in total solitude. Into an immense space carrying all of his uncertainties. It is that space that teaches him to find himself, to ask questions and reflect.
In the process, he may get lost, but he knows that he will struggle to find the way. And ends up revealing to himself a truth that transcends him. A truth so powerful that it dazzles him. It makes him see life where he once saw loneliness. Finally, feeling at peace and harmony with himself, he finds the help of great guides who sail at his side.
This piece leaves us with the teaching that we will never be completely alone. Only when we see ourselves and accept the multiple layers of our embodiment, can we connect with our environment and those around us. When we accept ourselves as we are, we can provide the best version of ourselves with the people around us and the world.
Almas de Barro
SSA or TTB
I wrote Almas de Barro at the age of 19, dedicating it to a young woman who at the time was shy and with whom he rarely talked. This piece intimately describes the moments during music theory classes when the two would look at each other continuously, youthfully, and silently, as if unable to do anything else.
The piece, written as a counterpoint assignment, was intended to be performed during music theory class as a declaration of love. The idea was to make a musical representation of those moments. This work begins without words, the voices representing youthful looks. They come together and occasionally dodge each other to highlight the discomfort of the situation, only to come back together within a few seconds. The poem conveys that all this is a fantasy, a dream state in which, upon awakening, will be lost. As the work progresses, the voices begin to detach from each other. When they awaken, they realize that they are lost and in complete solitude, this being the only thing they have in common. Last comes the coda, longing to return to sleep and to the fantasy dream.
