Double Choir with orchestra

This contrapuntal work fits the two-year college music program by using your combined choirs of adults and student groups in a double choir setting. The work begins and ends with polyphonic movements with a homophonic movement in the middle. The text is non-liturgical and repetitive. The two-chorus texture offers opportunities for interweaving of sounds and echo effects of all kinds. The orchestra features three trombones, two violins, cello, bass, bassoon and organ. It can successfully be performed with strings and organ accompaniment.
