Quote from: k a rl h e nn i ng on December 31, 2016, 05:06:36 AMI am glad to have helped, the piece is highly engaging, so that work on the project (the typographical and proofing work on my part, that is) never became tedious, because I found the music ever rewarding, its crystalline austerity setting off the Psalm text with a rich poignancy. The score has a ritualistic monumentality which I find powerfully impressive; and I believe it no exaggeration to call it a major new contribution to the unaccompanied choral literature.
Quote from: jessop on January 01, 2017, 12:43:07 PMWow!!! I'm very excited about this! I look forward to hearing it live! It seems a very ambitious work to compose, and very ambitious for a choir to sing as well considering its length and complexity
Quote from: Sergeant Rock on January 03, 2017, 04:50:51 AMA gorgeous piece, Cato. Sounds even better now in Karl's realization. I listened to it twice yesterday and will listen again today.Sarge
Quote from: k a rl h e nn i ng on January 03, 2017, 05:01:15 AMIt's really an addictive listen, I think, Sarge.

Quote from: (poco) Sforzando on January 20, 2017, 08:07:53 AMI have yet to listen, but will do so sometime soon. I always think it unfortunate that any creative person would destroy their work (this motif is also one subject of a new play I am thinking of - see my own playwriting thread). Even if many of us may not produce work that "survives" (whatever that means), it's a shame to deliberately accelerate the process. As appears from this thread, it is always possible that work we chose to give up has a future after all, and others may discover it and delight.

Quote from: Thatfabulousalien on May 21, 2017, 04:19:48 PMIt's a very engaging work, very compelling. I'm quite stunned at it to be honest. The harmonic/melodic writing is so ethereal, elusive. I loved the dissonance and contrapuntal stuff, it was excellent, need I say more? I congratulate you on this achievement Leo! I can't wait to hear it performed now
Quote from: Cato on May 22, 2017, 03:53:18 AMMany thanks for taking the time to read the score and listen to the MIDI version!A performance would be nice!
Quote from: Robert101 on June 20, 2017, 08:01:59 AMIt's very expressive. I like the way the harmonies flow-- shifting in intensity. Good work!
