SSA a cappella
Published by Cypress Choral Music
Duration: ca. 2:30
Programme Note: The compositional goal for this piece was to write something as joyful as possible. The starting point was in choosing to set one word of exclamation and rejoice: Alléluia! The piece is built on an iconic musical gesture of happiness, the ascending major triad. The natural rhythm of the word is used to give a 5/8 meter for most of the piece.
Premiere: First performance by Ensemble Vocale de la Salle, April 2016
