About the Work

One of the first choral works I composed. Focused on melody, crisp and rich chords , and the "oneness" of voices. With years of chamber choir and choral singing, it was an A Cappella work of ebb and flow.

Text

Qui negant se in lucem, saepe deperdita in sidera.

Sed etiam in fide, timore, et incerto ignotum…

 

Oculis nostris patent candidus lux.

Sollemnis radii, qui captant pulchritudo mundi.

Circumfusa propositus umbra, quae sparsa per mane lumen.

Nos sunt susceptibilis ad tenebris.


Qui negant se in lucem, saepe deperdita in sidera.

Sed etiam in fide, timore, et incerto ignotum…

 

Nos sunt unica.
