Hello singers! In isolation, I have been thinking about music for choirs that can’t meet in person but are getting together digitally, or Virtual Choirs.
I have written a piece called Night Prayer with these forces in mind. The work uses two versions of the ancient plainchant, ‘Te lucis ante terminum’ (Before the ending of the day), set against gently hummed textures and slow-moving harmonies.
I hope you like the piece. Please send me a recording if you manage to make one!
Stay healthy and safe,
Notes for choirs: give time and space for each idea to settle before moving on to the next phrase. This piece was designed to be unconducted, but feel free to experiment with different forces. Hopefully everything should fit together with a good deal of freedom!
