In Paradisum – SSAA

SSA(A)/piano (also available in TTBB or SATB unaccompanied [SSAA version is only one with piano])

During this covid19 pandemic – like millions of others – I felt helpless, full of unanswered questions, and most of all – profoundly sad for the thousands of families who lost a loved one – a mother, a father, a child, a grandparent, a friend, or someone else in their family circle.  One morning, I sat down and wrote this work as a gift to honor those who lost their lives in this pandemic.  It is the smallest of contributions, but perhaps a comfort to those left behind.

This recording was made by New American Voices, a professional choral ensemble under the director of Z. Randall Stroope.  The music (pdf below) is a free download, and directors can feel free to make as many copies as is needed for their ensembles – again, at no charge.
