‘Pater Noster’ now in printOctober 31st, 2012 | Posted by in composition
I am very happy to announce that my a cappella piece, Pater Noster, is now available from Bo Ejeby Förlag, who describes the composition as “a sonorous piece, in the mood of composers like Eric Whitacre or Morten Lauridsen”.
To me, writing choral music has been a very important way to channel my own thoughts and feelings towards God, faith and religion. My setting of “Pater Noster”, hopefully, illustrates a sense of being safe in the hands of the lord, and being comfortable, maybe even relaxed in your faith. The piece is in A-B-A form based on an warm and simple hymn, a more prayer-like mid section and with a very beautiful and shimmering cluster during the final ‘Amen’ leading the way to a hushed and trustful ending in Db major.
