In Paradisum

SATB unacc. (also available in TTBB unacc. and SSAA/Piano); Text – trad. & ZRS; publisher – free download; Duration 4 minutes

During the recent pandemic and seemingly constant world crises,  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.

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

The E-Music score is a free download, and directors can feel free to make as many copies as needed for their ensembles – again, at no charge for the scores.
