In Paradisum – SSAA

SSAA/piano (also available in SATB unacc. and TTBB unacc. [SSAA version is with piano]);  text – trad. & ZRS; publisher – free download; Duration 4 minutes

During the recent pandemic and seemingly constant crises in the world,  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.

An SATB recording was made by New American Voices, a professional choral ensemble under Randall’s direction, and a TTBB recording was made by the professional choir, Cantus, out of Minnesota.
